Bring on the asparagus! Make the most of asparagus season with this simple to make puff pastry tart. I spread a mixture of Boursin and mascarpone under the asparagus, but you can also use goat cheese, ricotta, or cream cheese. Add sliced mushrooms, roasted red peppers, or cherry tomatoes—the variations are endless!
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
1/3 cup Boursin cheese
1/3 cup mascarpone
Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 lb. thin asparagus, trimmed
1 Tbs. olive oil
2 tsp. maple syrup or honey
Fresh herbs for garnish, such as basil or thyme
If the asparagus is thick, you might need to either blanch it first, or slice it in half lengthwise so it will cook in time.
