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!
