Wanted to use up some things I had in the house. Typed in ham & asparagus & this came up. I didn't have the pepper, so used onion instead. It was delicious! My husband loved it too, so it is one I will make again. Thanks!!
This made for a filling meal. Didn't have ham or fresh tomatoes. Used a can of diced tomatoes with basil and oregano in it. Also added some chili garlic sauce. Will keep in our keeper file. Thanks.
