ingredients

  • 1 pack puff pastry sheets, 450 g
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 5 slices of good quality prosciutto
  • 200 g green asparagus
  • 50 g semi-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • salt
  • 250 g Castello® Creamy White

Side dish:

  • salad of fresh frisee endive, radicchio and frillice lettuce

Garnish:

  • fresh basil

preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.

2. Thaw the puff pastry on baking parchment for about 20 min.

3. Brush with egg and arrange 1 slice of prosciutto on each sheet of pastry – not all the way to the edge.

4. Bake for approx. 15 minutes until the pastry has puffed up and is golden.

5. Remove from the oven and prick the middle of the dough with a fork to release the air and create a raised edge all the way around.

6. Snap off the ends of the asparagus, then chop them into small pieces and blanch them.

7. Distribute the asparagus and semi-dried tomatoes over the tarts. Bake them for an additional 5 minutes or so.

8. Remove from the oven and arrange the cheese on top of the tarts, then pop them back in the oven for about a minute until the cheese melts.

9. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with a fresh salad.
