  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Allow pastry to thaw slightly then trim to a 24cm round.
  3. Place a 22cm ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Add sugar and water. Stir once, then cook for 5 minutes or until sugar turns to caramel. Carefully add balsamic vinegar and stir to combine.
  4. Arrange tomatoes and asparagus in the caramel in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Lay pastry over and tuck edges down into pan. Cut three slits in centre of pastry to allow steam to escape.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until pastry is golden. Remove from oven and stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Place a serving plate over pan. Hold firmly against pan and carefully flip pan over to turn tarte out.
  7. Serve garnished with parsley and crumbled goat’s cheese.
