DELICIOUS! I made exactly as written and everyone loved these!!! I also made another pan using artichoke hearts instead of asparagus and they were great, too! I also added some cayenne and smoky paprika over some of the squares just to be different. Thank you again, Kitten, for a wonderful recipe!!!
This was FABULOUS! Greg brought it to the potluck, and we could have eaten that alone!
