Ingredients
  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 1½ cups goat cheese crumbles
  • 1½ lbs. asparagus, steamed until just tender and bright green.
  • 1 Tbl. olive oil
  • sea salt & freshly cracked pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Roll the puff pastry out on a floured surface to about a 16"x10" rectangle. Fold in about 1" of the edges to make a frame. Gently score just inside the folded edge with a sharp knife. At every ½" interval, use a fork to pierce the dough. Then bake the prepared pastry for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Sprinkle the crumbled goat cheese over the top of the pastry. Cut the ends off the precooked asparagus leaving just the right length to fit between the pastry frame. Place the spears side by side, alternating direction until the goat cheese is covered.
  4. Drizzle the asparagus with olive oil, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the asparagus is tender. Allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting.
