This is a great dish to keep in mind for the upcoming holidays, especially if you’re looking for something easy. I’m definitely going to experiment with different toppings. Any suggestions on what I should use?

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Oh, and don’t forget to enter my latest giveaway!

Asparagus Gruyere Tart
from Martha Stewart

bench flour
1 sheet frozen puff pastry
2 cups Gruyere cheese, shredded
1 1/2 pounds thick asparagus
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Sprinkle flour on work surface and roll puff pastry into a 16×10 inch triangle. Trim and place on baking sheet.

Score dough one inch around edges with a sharp knife to mark a rectangle. Using a fork, score dough in half inch intervals inside the rectangle. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.

Remove pastry from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Trim bottoms of asparagus to fit inside shell. Arrange in a single layer, alternating ends and tips. Brush with oil, then season with salt and pepper. Bake until asparagus is tender, 20-25 minutes.
