How to prepare the asparagus savory pie

To prepare this savory pie, start by cleaning the asparagus, removing the toughest end part and if necessary peeling them lightly with a potato peeler. Wash them and cook them in an asparagus for ten minutes. If you do not have asparagus, you can blanch them normally in water for 7-8 minutes or even better, divide the stems from the tips and boil the first for 10 minutes and the tips for only 2-3 minutes.

For the filling of the cake, place the ricotta, milk, parmesan, eggs and saffron in a bowl and mix well until all the ingredients are combined. Add salt, pepper and the asparagus stalks cut into rings.

Put the pastry in a 24 cm diameter pan, then fill it with the ricotta mixture and decorate the surface with the asparagus tips cut in half lengthwise.

At this point the recipe ends with cooking: bake the cake at 180 ° for 50 minutes in a preheated ventilated oven. Let it rest for 15 minutes before serving.
