Asparagus and Ricotta Tart
We are so so so excited. Why? Because after three years we are finally able to harvest our homegrown asparagus. It's kind of ironic that ten years ago we didn't buy asparagus, nor eat them on a regularly basis - maybe just from time to time on vacation. Which made it so much more fun to experiment with asparagus and all new flavors. So for the past few years we cooked and baked a lot of asparagus dishes, we actually liked them so much that we planted 20 asparagus on our vegetables garden. Asparagus are really easy to work with and they are also super delicious in this tart. It's extra creamy, full of delicious stuff like ricotta, mascarpone, sour cream in combination with asparagus. Perfect for celebrations as a side dish or for dinner.

Lets get cooking!

    Pour the creamy mixture into the prebaked tart shell. Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 175 degrees C / 350 degrees F. Meanwhile pan fry the asparagus.
