    Tish's Note:

    I love fresh asparagus recipes. Got this one out of 100 Pasta Sauce Recipes. Serve with some crusty bread and a salad and you have a great dinner. It turns out great!

      I just made this using nonfat ricotta cheese and light butter. I also used Pam Olive oil spray instead of butter to "butter" the pan. It was delicious and, I'm sure, considerably lower in calories and fat. Very easy to make as well.

      This is a very tasty dish but I did a couple of things wrong. The recipe says to use a deep oven dish - I used a 2 1/2" dish and this made it a bit dry - I found that 20 minutes in the oven was not enough time to cook the eggs and brown the cheese. The asparagus only needs to be sauted for about 5 minutes (I like them crisp) It is easily enough for 8 persons if it is a side dish and not the main course. I am not awarding stars because I feel it was my errors that caused it to be dry and want to be fair in my rating a/o comments
