Creamy chicken and asparagus casserole, can be served over rice or noodles. I threw in a bit of this and a bit of that, and the whole family (including my picky eighteen year old daughter who won't touch chicken) licked the plates. Definitely a winner.
Simple, fast, and delicious, a creamy blend of parmesan, cream, orzo, shrimp and herbs. Thirty minutes start to finish on the stove top, or throw everything in the crockpot at the beginning of the day, it couldn't be easier. You can also substitute scallops or diced chicken for the shrimp, or leave out entirely for a creamy side dish.
This recipe makes a fabulously elegant, rich chocolate dessert that isn't nearly as hard as it looks. You can dress it up with raspberry coulis, chocolate glazed strawberries, chocolate leaves or whatever, but it's equally fabulous just as is.
Prep time includes 8 hours chilling time, and another hour cooling before that.
