This asparagus tart is balanced by notes of savory Gruyère, fresh asparagus and creamy ricotta cheese. Sweet peas and honey round out the flavors, with a dash of heat coming from crushed red pepper.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Unfold puff pastry and place on the prepared baking sheet. Using a sharp knife, gently score a 3/4-inch border around the edges of the pastry. Brush the edges with 1 1/2 teaspoons oil.

  • Stir ricotta, Gruyère, thyme, shallot, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper together in a medium bowl; spread the mixture evenly over the pastry, inside the border. Toss asparagus and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil together in a bowl; arrange on top of the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle evenly with peas.

  • Bake until the pastry is puffed and golden and the asparagus is tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Garnish with honey and/or crushed red pepper, if desired. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
