Ingredients needed:

  • Puff pastry without yeast - 0.5 kg.
  • Cream cheese (the cook used ricotta) - 200 g.
  • Asparagus - 250 g.
  • Jamon - 50 g.
  • Salt, spices to taste (garlic clove, oregano, thyme, smoked paprika, dill or parsley).
  • Egg yolk for lubrication.

Step-by-step recipe for cooking:

1. Roll out the dough into a layer, pierce with a fork, brush with egg yolk and bake at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes.

2. While the dough is baking, prepare the cream. Mix the cottage cheese, a pinch of salt and all your favorite spices.

3. Next, get to work on the asparagus. Sayenko said that this time she didn't peel the asparagus, but did it differently.

"Just take one shoot and start bending it. It will break right where the hard part ends," the cook advised.

Asparagus should be blanched for 1 minute in salted boiling water and immediately put into cold water.

4. After baking the dough, brush it with cream, put asparagus, jamon and sprinkle with feta. Bake for another 5-7 minutes at 180 degrees to allow all the ingredients to "marry".
