Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Asparagus, Pesto & Goats Cheese Tart

Making the most of the short Asparagus Season, another 15 minute meal using just one tray. Serve with tomato salad if you wish. Happy Meat Free Monday or this is perfect as part of a lunch buffet. There is no need to make your own pastry. You will never compete with the ready rolled puff pastry available in supermarkets! You could make your own pesto (see our story highlights on Instagram).
