    My husband tells me ASPARAGUS is disgusting, so why does he love this?. I do chop the asparagus in tiny pieces, but I'm not going to lie I can taste it--as you know asparagus has it's own taste, like trying to disguise brussel sprouts!

      i thought this was ok- but then again my DH made it at my request. I had wanted him to steam the fresh asparagus I had on hand until tender crisp- didn't happen so they were still a little bit too firm for me. He also decided to use monzerella cheese- which made this VERY cheesey. I am not giving up on this though since his changes & mine just didn't wow us. so this is moving into the tried and true cookbook for another time. Thanks for sharing!

      Yeee-ummmy! I took this great recipe "uptown" by using fresh asparagus (6 fat stalks roasted with drizzled olive oil, salt & pepper, for about 10 minutes in a 400 oven) -- and what a great instruction to chop the asparagus into tiny pieces! For the white sauce I used butter instead of margarine, and I thought this recipe would soar with Swiss I used that (about 1.5 c. shredded). For the milk I used my customary mix of milk, heavy cream and chicken stock -- but that's just me -- with a healthy splash of white wine. I used farfalle pasta, and topped this with 1/2 c. buttered panko. The result? About the best thing I've ever done with leftover ham! Thanks for such a great and inspirational recipe... the combination of ham, pasta, creamy sauce and asparagus is truly unbeatable.
