Gruyère Asparagus Tart

Have you ever tried to make homemade puff pastry?  While it is not difficult to make, it is time-consuming because you have to chill the dough between each rolling.  When I made it, I used a Martha Stewart recipe which can be found here.  I adapted Martha's recipe for Asparagus Gruyère Tart when I made my Gruyère Asparagus Tart recipe.

Fresh From the Garden Asparagus

I made this tart for our Easter dinner this year and it was so delicious.  When my friends Wayne and Gloria brought me some fresh asparagus from their garden, I was so excited.  Of course, this was a sign I needed to post this recipe on my site.  If you like asparagus, you will love this tart.  This is a great recipe for #MeatlessMondays.  Try it for yourself and let me know how you like it.  Afiyet olsun!

Notes
Feel free to make your own puff pastry. You can find Martha Stewart's recipe here. You can watch her video here. I used Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry in my recipe. And in case you are wondering, I have not been compensated for saying I used Pepperidge Farms Puff Pastry, I just like it. It would be nice though.
