Asparagus, Goat Cheese, & Red Onion Tart

I might be a little obsessed with puff pastry. It is just too easy and too delicious not to use. Puff pastry is the easiest way to make a tart in my opinion. Asparagus tarts are very trendy right now and I can see why. It turns out beautiful and so tasty! It is the perfect side dish or appetizer.

Notes

Wait to cut until right before serving. The presentation is too beautiful for your guests not to see!  While cutting, hold the asparagus in place.
