"Though I'm not particularly a fan of canned asparagus, this casserole version produces a mighty fine dish...it's all in the sauce."

"This was just wonderful. I used Ritz crackers for the topping. The family thought it should be made again. Thanks for posting."
"Decadently delicious and rich! I'm not a fan of canned asparagus, but this was absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR Holiday Special."
"This is a great casserole that makes even canned asparagus taste good! Loved the topping on this. I used bread crumbs instead of cracker crumbs, otherwise made as directed. Thanks for posting your recipe!"
"This was very good. It went over well in my house. The kids even ate it up with no complaints. They do like asparagus, but we've never done it like this. Leftovers were still good, though the top was better the first time, of course. Thanks!"
"This is a great recipe, although I found it a bit salty, my fault!....not the recipe!!! I used Salada biscuits for the topping, and they are very salty but next time must remember to use salt free Salada's. I added salt to sauce as well and think it was a little too much....ahh well, it was still really good! I used asparagus cuts, only because I had 2 large cans to use up, but even with the cuts the recipe turned out well. Next time I think I will try this recipe with fresh asparagus, and I think with fresh asparagus this would be even more fantstic! This is a very easy recipe to prepare and a great side dish. Thanks gailanng will be making again!"
"I used fresh asparagus, but otherwise followed the recipe and directions. The asparagus came out very well, but I didn't care for the sauce at all. I would have preferred to roast the asparagus and prepare a thinner sauce on the stove top to pour over the asparagus. Just not to my taste."
"Man, oh man, was this ever good! And so very easy. Made tonight with Recipe #371092. A lovely dinner. Thnx for posting, gailanng. Made for ZWT5"
"Oh how much do I love thee, oh asparagus you? I saw this recipe the other day, and knowing I had a full bunch of fresh, (drenched) asparagus to be cut and used from the garden, and....since it's rainy and rainy, I thought I would love to use this as a delicious dinner. And so it turned out to be made right away. So I don't like to make recipe changes, however; I don't think the following affected this recipe, but I used as previously mentioned, fresh asparagus and also instead of *saltines* I used Recipe #87258 and crumbled these up for the topping. I cooked and blanched the asparagus in 1 cup of water, and I used the cooking water in place of the canned asparagus liquid. I see no reason to even change anything in this heart warming, good to warm your bones and soul with recipe. Absolutely stunningly delicious! Baking time was perfect. Made for *Flower Power* in Everyday is a Holiday May 2009"
"I had only one can of asparagus so added a diced and peeled eggplant with a great result - it was a great dinner for vegetarians. I also liked the cracker topping and was very generous with it - I probably used about a cup but I am always heavy handed when I cook. This is a really versatile recipe so many thanks."
"Pretty good for asparagus. it is remniscent of traditional broccoli casserole"
