      5 plus stars for this beautifully simple recipe that we ate for brunch just now. I used 120g regular Australian ham diced, and a bunch of asparagus. I couldn't see why I needed to specifically use a casserole dish so used a heavy based s/s pan instead. We ate the whole recipe between the two of us along with warm crusty bread. A good one for brunch, lunch or a quick dinner.
