      This was soo good! I used smaller/thin asparagus so they cooked fast, but were perfectly tender. Also used store-bought bread crumbs which worked well, but otherwise made as written. Was like eating a nice meal out, but I made it! Glad I am the only one who eats seafood, I didn't have to share! Made for Football Pool 2012-13 Win.

      This was an easy as can be, and totally delish to enjoy either right at that moment, or~for a later evening meal. I had plenty of beautiful shrimp on hand, as well as the usual abundance of asparagus, so the two married quite nicely, coupled with the delicate taste of the white/cheese sauce, plus the crunchy topping brought this meal completely together. The only change I made personally was use a green bell pepper, because that is what the garden is producing. I also added the tiniest bit of slivered spring onion atop this bake. twissis, thank you for posting this appetizing and very savory meal.
