Did somebody say puff pastry? Yay! I absolutely love anything with puff pastry and these Asparagus Puff Pastry Bundles with Roasted Peppers & Goat Cheese are no exception. Loaded with so many simple yet extraordinary flavors, easy to make and done in about 30 minutes.
I like to serve these puff pastry bundles as a tapas appetizer, just because they make for a tasty starter to any meal. But you can always serve them as main course. They go perfect next to some roasted mushrooms and a simple salad.
To make these puff pastry bundles I used some fresh asparagus. The season is ending right about now, but you can almost always find them at your supermarket all year-round. I also used some jarred roasted peppers, a medallion of soft goat cheese and some premade puff pastry dough.
However, what really takes these puff pastry bundles to the next-level in greatness is the addition of some sweet smoked Spanish paprika. This adds a new dimension of flavors to these puff pastry bundles and gives them that beautiful smoky flavor. On a last note, I cut my puff pastry into 6 inch x 6 inch squares, but you can always cut them into 4 inch x 4 inch squares for smaller portions.
