1 package of store bought puff pastry sheets(you can make your own but I was on a time crunch)
1/4 cup Mascarpone(yum)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 large clove of garlic, minced
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
pinch on pepper flakes
salt and pepper
preheat your oven to 420. Line baking sheet with parchment
Roll the puff out on the baking sheet into a rectangle. Carefully put into the fridge while you prepare the other ingredients.
In a small bowl combine the Marscarpone, cream, garlic, pepper flakes, and a hefty pinch of salt and pepper.
Remove the woody part of the asparagus ends and then toss with olive oil.
Remove the puff from the fridge and top with the Mascarpone mixture leaving a 1" border around the edges. On top of the Mascarpone lay the asparagus down, single file, one right next to the other. Sprinkle with fine sea salt and place in the oven. After the first 20 minutes of baking reduce the heat to 350 and continue to bake for another 20-30 minutes, until cooked through.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Before you devour it, top with the toasted walnuts and shaved Parmesan. Serve warm or at room temperature.
