Tasty Asparagus Sandwich

Tasty Asparagus Sandwich

This asparagus recipe is a good idea for an easy dinner or a buffet. It mixes the toasted puff pastry taste with asparagus, buffalo mozzarella and a light tomato sauce. An Italian flag with a lot of taste.

Yesterday we had my Godmother and her children for dinner. Our children grew up together and I prepared an easy dinner, like a on table buffet, so I put everything on the table so that we could talk without going inside out the kitchen bringing the next course. I love eating this way and it seems they enjoyed it too ;-).

I prepared different recipes that I’ll be posting soon, and one of these were these asparagus sandwich, My son doesn’t love asparagus and ate it yesterday plus 2 today! Real proof this recipe is tasty and worthy trying ;-).

I prepared a light tomato sauce just putting a thread of olive oil in a pan together with a small can of peeled tomatoes plus parsley, thyme and basil. Cooked for a few minutes and ready to use. You can use another tomato sauce if you wish.

p.s.- As I prepared a lot of things yesterday, there were a couple of sandwiches leftover. I put them in the oven for 15 minutes and …my son ate them all!

  1. Turn on the oven to 180°C/356°F.
  2. Put the puff pastry on an oven tray covered with parchment paper.
  3. Brush it with an egg lightly beaten.
  4. Add sesame seeds.
  5. Cover it with another sheet of parchment paper and add another tray over the puff pastry to make some weigh and avoid it to grow.
  6. Bake it for about 30 minutes - until it becomes light brown.
  7. In the meanwhile:
  8. Prepare a light tomato sauce with a thread of olive oil, fresh herbs like thyme, basil and parsley with a small can of peeled tomatoes. Let it cook for 10 minutes.

  10. Wash and clean the asparagus and let them boil for 3 to 4 minutes.

  12. Take the puff pastry out of the oven.
  13. On a large flat surface, using a sharp knife, carefully cut the puff pastry in squares and then each square in 2 triangles (the size of each square/triangle depends on the size of your puff pastry package. Try to use the more and so divide it in equal squares).
  14. Be careful because it is very fragile.
  15. Before serving, put half of the triangles face down on the serving plate, add about a Tbsp of tomato sauce, some mozzarella and 2 asparagus (cut lenghtwise and in 2, so 4 pieces).
  16. Cover with the other triangle and serve.
  17. Buon appetito!
