Asparagus Tray Bake
Preheat the oven to 200C/gas mark 6. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Trim the asparagus spears where they begin to become woody. Add to the pan, bring back to the boil and cook for 4 minutes. Drain and refresh in cold water. Remove and dry on a tea towel.
Roll the pastry a few millimeters thick into a rectangle 40x20cm and trim to neaten the edges - make sure you have a baking tray large enough, otherwise adjust the dimensions accordingly.
Lay the pastry on the baking tray. Blend the creme fraiche, mustard, Parmesan, 1 beaten egg yolk, and seasoning together in a bowl. Spoon this cream over the pastry so there is a pastry surround of 2cm. Lay on top the asparagus in in rows of single spears. Beat the remaining egg yolk and paint the pastry borders.
Bake the tart for 30 minutes. Serve 5 minutes out of the oven, though it is excellent cold
