Easy Asparagus Tart
This asparagus tart is very easy to make. If you can't get fresh asparagus, frozen ones will work fine. Pair with a salad, or a nice juicy piece of steak.
1 sheet of puff pasty
1 box (5.2 oz) Boursin cheese (Garlic & Fine Herb)
1 bag of frozen asparagus spears (you can also use fresh ones)
PAM butter cooking spray
Black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°F. Thaw puff pastry.
Unroll and spread Boursin cheese on top of the pastry. The cheese spreads much easier when it is in room temperature.
Leave about half an inch on each side.
Arrange asparagus spears on top of the cheese. You can arrange the spears in alternate orders.
Continue arranging the asparagus spears until you have covered all the cheese.
Fold the sides and tuck them neatly to form a square tart. If the edges are not sticking, try using some water to moisten the dough and then crimp them. Spray PAM Butter cooking spray evenly on top of the tart. A quick dash of black pepper on top of the asparagus.
Bake at a 400°F for 20 minutes. Add lemon zest on top once the tart finished baking. Serve warm.
