The combination of asparagus with pecorino is so delicious in this savoury pie. Great for lunch and for dinner. Serve with a tasty salad.

Preparation

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 200 ºC.
  • 2
    Place the thawed slices of puff pastry against each other in a rectangle and roll them out a little more with the rolling pin so you have one large piece of pastry.
  • 3
    Place the puff pastry in a butter-greased baking pan. Prick some holes in the pastry base with a fork. Bake the base in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes. Remove the baking tin from the oven.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, remove the tough ends of the asparagus. Finely chop the bacon and fry it in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until golden brown and crispy.
  • 5
    Beat the eggs, cream, mustard and some salt and pepper in a bowl. Add most of the pecorino, stir in the bacon and pour the mixture into the pastry base.
  • 6
    Carefully place the asparagus. Sprinkle with the rest of the pecorino, bake the pie in the oven for 20 minutes - until the filling has just set.
  • 7
    Let the pie rest for 15 minutes. Serve with a green salad.
