Let's get Cooking...
Prepare your dough: In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and butter. Drizzle in the water. Gather dough and knead so everything comes together. Flatten dough into a disc, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, heavy cream and garlic. Set aside until ready to use.
Roll out dough into a 10-12 inch diameter. Place pie crust on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spread the cheese mixture onto the pie crust, leaving a border around the edge. Layer on the potato slices, and sprinkle asparagus on top. Season with salt and pepper and top with Gruyere cheese.
Fold sections of the pie crust over the filling to make a shape resembling a hexagon. Brush the pastry with heavy cream.
Bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve with a nice, crisp radicchio and arugula salad.
