Asparagus and Prosciutto Tart
This past Thanksgiving, I wanted to make sure that everyone had plenty of nibbles before dinner, and I loved the fluffy pastry, green asparagus, prosciutto, and then topped with a little honey-mustard dressing. It would also be delicious if you switched out the asparagus for some spinach!
(note: You want to serve this warm.)
1 Sheet Puff Pastry – thawed
1 Tablespoon Water
1 Cup Italian Blend Shredded Cheese
1/2 lb Asparagus trimmed
1 teaspoon Whole Grain Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon Honey
Preheat oven to 400°F. Lay puff pastry flat on a baking sheet sprayed with nonstick.
Fold edges 1/2 inch inward and press down gently with fork to secure. Puncture inside of puff pastry square several times with fork.
Layer 1/2 cup shredded cheese on the pastry. Lay the asparagus evenly on top of cheese. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over asparagus.
Mix egg and water. Brush edges of puff pastry with egg wash. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Make sauce by mixing the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, and honey.
Top with thinly sliced prosciutto and drizzle honey mustard sauce.
