Preheat oven to 210 C. Place the puff pastry on a baking sheet. 

Sprinkle cheese all over the puff pastry sheets. 

Line up the asparagus on top of the cheese.

Place in the oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden brown puffy.

Slice it into squares and serve. 

You can add salt and pepper if you feel that you need it, but the cheese usually has enough flavor

Cook onions over a low heat for 5-10 minutes until softened. Then Add sugar and vinegar, cook a further 5 minutes.

Press pastry into the base of a lightly oiled 33 x 9 cm rectangular fluted pan with removable base. Pastry will need to overlap slightly and be trimmed to fit.
