This is such an old recipe from my  Mom.

She only made it during the Spring because the asparagus were so nice.

One defrosted puff pastry crust

16 ounces ricotta cheese

zest of 1/2 lemon

4  rounded tablespoons Parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

30 asparagus

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cloves garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

Ten ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

3 slices provolone cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Mix the ricotta cheese, lemon zest, salt and pepper together.

Set aside.

Roll out the puff pastry to a 8 by 6 rectangle

Spread the ricotta cheese on top

Sauté the garlic with the olive oil

Add the asparagus and coat well with the oil and garlic

Add the salt

Layer the asparagus  with the oil and garlic over the ricotta cheese

Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese

Bake for 10 minutes

Take out of the oven and place the provolone cheese and mozzarella cheese on top

Bake for another 12 minutes or until the crust is nice and brown

Serve hot.
