Asparagus Tart #tastecreations

I love this time of year when asparagus starts to send up its tender shoots.  When I was little I helped my grandmother collect wild asparagus, which looks a lot like snakeweed.  I don't ever remember eating any, maybe she saved it for herself!  To honor this spring vegetable, Taste Creation bloggers are sharing their favorite asparagus recipes with you!

This super simple recipe takes away any excuse to make it.  All the ingredients are found easily in your grocery store. There's little to do except to prepare the asparagus.  Read on to see how simple this truly is!

Asparagus Tart

1 lb of asparagus, hopefully thin stalks, snapped right above the cut
8 oz of shredded cheese.  I prefer fontina, but guyere and havarti are nice, too
2 sheets of puff pastry

Preheat to 425.  Place a piece of parchment on your cookie sheet and place the puff pastry on it.  Sprinkle on the cheese, then lay the asparagus in straight lines across the pastry. Salt and pepper if desired.  Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.  Remove from the oven.  The pastry will be high and fluffy but will soon start to deflate. No worries, that's what it always does.

To serve, cut into squares and drizzle with a little balsamic vinegar.
