  • Spread the ricotta mixture on the inside of the border of the pastry.
  • Sprinkle the Gruyère on top of the ricotta.
  • Trim the ends of the asparagus so that they are all about the same size and fit inside the pastry. Place the asparagus spears inside the tart shell. Alternate the tips and bottoms so that they fit better.
