Puff Pastry with Tomatoes, Swiss and Asparagus

The other night, my friend came over for dinner and brought a delicious savory tart with tomato, asparagus, cheese and basil - so I made my own individual sized version!!

What you need:

  • 1 package Frozen Puff Pastry
  • 1/2 lb. Sliced Baby Swiss
  • 2 Beefsteak Tomatoes
  • 1 Bunch Thin Asparagus
  • Fresh Basil
  • Shredded Parmegano Romano
What to do:

Thaw and cut your puff pastry into squares - I cut mine into 9 squares per sheet for a total of 18.

Then place them on cooking sheets and pre-bake for 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them as they are cooking, if you get any big bubbles, poke them with a fork or knife.

Slice the tomato thin and place it on paper towels to remove some of the extra moisture.

And cut the asparagus into 1 1/2 - 2" pieces.

And cut the swiss into pieces that will fit on your squares.

Also, chiffonade the basil.
Then layer, beginning with the swiss.

Then the basil.

Then tomato.

Then asparagus.

And finally a sprinkle of Parmagano.

Then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes till everything is cooked.

These can be served hot or at room temperature, and as a side dish or an appetizer - they were SOOOO good!

I even took the leftovers to work and ate them for breakfast :)
