Tips for Making this Savory Tart

Since the filling is wet, par baking the crust is an important step. Make sure the crust is golden brown before removing it from the oven so it has a chance to cool slightly before pouring in the filling.

To help your filling mix easily and evenly, ensure the eggs, heavy cream and goat cheese are at room temperature.
Thicker asparagus spears work best for this recipe since they will hold up better during baking.

Toast the walnuts lightly in a skillet before garnishing for a nice aroma and toasty flavor.
