  • 1
    Place the rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • 2
    Unroll and stretch the pie crust. Place it in the tart pan (rectangular, 8x11 1/2 inches). Prick the dough with a fork to keep the center from puffing up. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • 3
    Hold the asparagus by the ends and peel the stalks with a potato peeler.
  • 4
    In a medium pot, heat up 6 cups of water with the salt. When it comes to a boil, add asparagus. Cook for 3 minutes, remove and drain very carefully so they don’t fall apart.
  • 5
    Add cheeses to the previously cooked tart. Arrange the asparagus; if possible, make two or more layers, depending on the depth of the pan. Sprinkle with more cheese and put it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, until the cheese melts.
  • 6
    Let it cool at room temperature, unmold and serve warm. Be very careful when you take it out of the oven.
