I made this yesterday for my husband and he loved it. We had it with a Mediterranean style salad and the combo was just delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
3.5 stars. This really could have done without the extra salt and Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. And for one sheet of puff pastry, I found 4 oz of softened cream cheese to be more than enough. I added chives to the cream mixture, which I liked. Probably would be four stars the next time I make this if I omit the extra Parm and salt.
i had this for dinner tonight and i can't believe how good it was! they didn't have fresh asparagus in the supermarket, so i used canned green asparagus instead and it tasted great! will make again soon.
This was easy and very tasty, the only thing I will do different is to lessen the lemon juice a bit. It was a bit sour. I had to go back and look at the recipe and make sure I hadn't read it incorrectly and read tbspn instead of tsp. Overall nice recipe.
This was AWESOME. I made for an appetizer on Easter Sunday. Family Loved IT (Especially our vegetarian in the family) Dont panic over the quarters with the puff pastry. Just make sure there are four and that you use the Asparagus as stated. Its a beautiful dish and fun for all!
These are excellent with a superb presentation to wow your guests!
This is my first review, but my new husband liked this so much he sent me a text the next day, "My wife cooks better than a professional chef!" We both loved the rich and tangy taste!
I've done something similar with various vegetables but what makes this recipe a winner is the combination of ingredients for the cheese spread. Tastes sophisticated.
