Ingredients


1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
2 cups shredded fontina cheese
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, bring 1 in. of water to a boil; add asparagus. Cook, covered, until crisp-tender, 3-5 minutes. Drain and pat dry.

On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry sheet into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Transfer to a parchment-lined large baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Sprinkle 1-1/2 cups cheese over pastry to within 1/2-in. of edges. Place asparagus over top; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Mix remaining ingredients; drizzle over top. Bake until cheese is melted, 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
