This asparagus casserole is baked with white sauce, made with cheese and a topping of buttered bread crumbs. I found this recipe at southernfoods.com and was impressed that it was so easy to make as well as tasty.

made as written plus added a previously grilled left over chicken breast. It only enhanced a great recipe. The red pepper is a great visual addition. I don't believe it adds to the flavor. Thanks. I was so tired of steamed asparagus.
