			  Easy Asparagus Tart

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 500g fresh ricotta cheese
  • 2-3 bunches fresh asparagus, woody ends removed (see Tip)
  • 2 cups grated tasty cheese
  • 1 egg
  • Flaked salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place ricotta, half the cheese, and beaten egg into a bowl and beat until thick and smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Place pastry sheet on a baking tray covered with non-stick baking paper. Spread ricotta filling over pastry base, leaving a 2cm border all around.
  3. Wash and snap asparagus then pat it dry with paper towel. Lay spears side by side on top of ricotta filling, covering entire surface.
  4. Sprinkle asparagus with remaining grated cheese and sprinkle again with some black pepper.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in pre heated oven or until filling is set and pastry is golden.
  6. Serve in slices with a salad.


  • If the asparagus is thin (and therefore there are more spears per bunch), use 2 bunches. If the spears are thick, use 3 bunches.
