Great dish. I'm no vegetarian but it was so satisfying I had it for lunch by itself. Yum! Thank you.

Great! Loved it! Tried for ZWT VI. I don't eat any mushrooms, so I omitted them. Used light cream, and much less butter and olive oil. Loved the tomato/asparagus combo. Thanks so much! Delicious! Will make again.
