Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC. Line 2 baking trays with paper.

  2. Cut two sheets of pastry in half and place on trays. Cut strips from remaining pastry and place on all edges of the cut tart bases to form sides to the tarts. Alternatively, you can line flan or pie tins with pastry. Dock bases with fork.

  3. Place cheese and parsley into mixing bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 10.

  4. Add ricotta, walnuts, salt and pepper and mix 5 sec/speed 5.

  5. With aid of spatula, spread mixture on each tart, ensuring you do not put any mixture on the edges.

  6. Arrange asparagus spears on each tart and brush any exposed pastry with egg wash.

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes (220°C) until puffed and golden. Serve hot sprinkled with a few additional chopped walnuts.

    Yum! Loved by all. I used filo pastry. Next time I will do 

    walnuts chunkier on a lower speed for more texture. Definitely making this again.
