Asparagus Stalk Home Tart

As Benjamin Franklin once said, "The Gods made asparagus tarts because they love us and want us to be happy." Okay, maybe he didn't say that, but he probably would have if he had ever had an asparagus tart.

Using store-bought puff pastry makes this tart recipe as easy as pie. All you need are a few ingredients and the patience to let your puff pastry thaw so it doesn't break. Let's get started!
