A new comfort veggie side dish, with an Italian flair!  Puff pastry smeared with cheeses and spices, then wrapped around asparagus.  Baked on the grill until light gold in color. The interior is creamy and cheesy, the exterior light and flaky!

Ingredients
  • 1 lb asparagus, woody ends trimmed
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 3/4 cup ricotta
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, fine grated
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning
  • Olive oil, for brushing
Instructions

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Grill to 400ºF, set up for indirect grilling.

Combine the ricotta, parmesan and Italian dressing in a small bowl and mix well. Season with Cattleman’s Grill Italiano Seasoning. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Slice each square of frozen puff pastry into four equal sized strips. Spread an equal amount of the cheese filling over each strip.

Divide the pound of asparagus into 8 equal portions. Lay a bundle of asparagus on the cheese topped pastry, and roll the pastry around the asparagus. Place each serving on a parchment lined sheet pan.

Place the sheet pan on the second shelf of the smoked and cook until the pastry is cooked through and light golden brown in color, about 45 minutes.

Smoked Key Lime Tart Recipe

There are two pieces to this recipe that can be prepared using a smoker, the baking of the crust and the final baking/setting of the tart itself. You can make this dish in a traditional pie pan, or using muffin tins like I did to create a personal-sized tart.
