This Asparagus and Parmesan Tart is Perfect for the holidays!

Updated: Nov 9, 2021

It's also perfect any other time of year, if you’re wondering!

Notes from the LHTC Team:

Using frozen puff pastry from the grocery store is THE way to get great pastries with very little effort. In this recipe we layered dijon mustard, parmesan & mozzarella cheeses and blanched asparagus on top of puff pastry dough and baked for 15 minutes to get a shatteringly flaky, cheesy Spring tart perfect for any get together.


Asparagus & Parmesan Tart

Servings: 4-6 | Prep Time: 30 minutes


1 pound Asparagus, trimmed

1 sheet Puff Pastry, thawed

2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard

1 1/2 cups Mozzarella, shredded

1/2 cup Parmesan, shredded

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1. Blanch the asparagus: fill a large bowl with ice water. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the asparagus to the boiling water and cook 2-5 minutes until bright green and crisp-tender. Drain and transfer the asparagus to the ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and pat dry.

2. Assemble the tart: Preheat the oven to 400F. Roll out the puff pastry sheet to a 10 by 16-inch rectangle on a silpat mat or large piece of parchment. Transfer the silpat/parchment with rolled puff pastry to a sheet pan.

3. Spread dijon mustard in an even layer on the puff pastry, leaving a one-inch border around the sides.

4. Toss together the mozzarella and parmesan cheeses and sprinkle evenly over the layer of the dijon mixture. Lay the asparagus side-by-side across the cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and

bake 15-20 minutes until pastry is golden brown and cheese is puffy.

5. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
