    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe for asparagus, you can cook the asparagus hours or even a day in advance and refrigerate, just warm the spears slightly in the microwave before placing them in the baking dish and broiling them. Adjust the amount of garlic to taste.

      I had really, really THIN asparagus, so I skipped the blanching part (we like crisp veggies anyway). It came out perfectly. Even THE PICKY ONE had 2nds! I do recommend having the butter at room temp for easier blending. ;) Thanks, KITZ!!

      Yum! I made 1/2 of the recipe, which would call for 3 1/2 T butter. I used only 2 T and with the butter that is already in the prepared dish, it was plenty. I loved how the cheese makes a crust. It seals all the other ingredients onto the asparagus and doesn't just flavor it and then run off to the bottom of the dish. DS even liked them and that is a miracle in and of itself. He would never even try asparagus. Served with Balsamic Roasted Onions and Potatoes Balsamic Roasted Onions and Potatoes, beef fillet with a peppercorn sauce. Made a great Fathers Day Dinner. Thanks KITTENCAL. Another winner!

      We are big asparagus fans in our house and this was pretty good. We loved the flavor, but the double-cooking kind of made them a little overdone. We opted to steam them because we like them every so slightly crisp, but they still got a little overdone for our tastes. Next time, we'll steam them a little less before moving on to the other steps... great taste and our kids and guests loved it!
