"Made this exactly as shown, except that I made a border on the pastry with a paring knife and docked the center. Makes for a nice border. What a delicious recipe! The lemon and oil over really brings the flavours together. Looking forward to eating the leftovers!"

"Best asparagus recipe out there if I do say so myself! Perfect for a crowd or even 1 or 2! Every last crumb is gobbled up no matter how many people. I wish my name was below the recipe since I am the winner/creator of it but oh well! I am glad so many people get to enjoy this recipe, it came from my heart."

"I've made this a new times now - it's absolutely delicious! Since good Fontina cheese is somewhat pricey, the second time I made this, I used one-half Fontina cheese and one-half Havarti cheese (which I also love and it's a very creamy, rich cheese as well). My kids love this too!"
