Description

This easy recipe for a springtime asparagus goat cheese tart combines these two flavors with an easy crescent roll crust. 


Ingredients

  • 1 eight ounce tube crescent roll dough
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed (and if it is very thick, stems peeled)
  • Fresh ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and simmer asparagus in boiling water until they are just starting to get tender (about 3 minutes for thin and 5 minutes for thick, then drain and dry.
  3. Take dough out of the tube and unroll it onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat. Press the seams together until you have a rectangle of dough.
  4. Lay the asparagus in a neat row all along the dough, leaving a little dough open along all four sides. Fold those edges up and over the ends of the asparagus.
  5. Sprinkle with goat cheese and fresh ground pepper and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until dough is golden brown.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes, then cut into squares (a pizza cutter works wonderfully for this!)

Notes

I love to serve this with a couple of sunny side up eggs on the side for some delicious protein!
