3

Simple and easy to make, this asparagus and goat cheese tart is beautiful as an appetizer or side dish.

4
4 sheets phyllo pastry
11 ounces goat’s milk cheese
1-2 bunches asparagus tips, trimmed
olive oil
salt and fresh ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush the sheets of phyllo pastry with olive oil and fold each into a rectangle. Place on a baking sheet. Crumble the goat cheese on top, leaving a border of pastry. Add the asparagus. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the pastry is golden-crisp and the asparagus just tender. Cut each rectangle in half for a side dish or cut into small strips for appetizers. *Ricotta works well as a substitute for goat’s milk cheese.
