This was a hit!!! Both my kids (9 1/2 & 6) as well as my DH and me had seconds. I used 1 can of crescent rolls in an approx 13x9 jelly roll pan (they did not completely fill the entire pan but that was o.k.). I also sauteed the asaparagus with garlic powder and onion powder, rather than minced garlic and chopped onions, as the kids wouldn't have liked it that way. Once I put the asparagus on the browned crescent rolls, I sprinkled Morton's Nature's Seasons on top of the asparagus and then sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top. I gave it four stars simply because of my modifications. I will definiteyl be making this again.
