  • Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups cheese over crumbs.
  • Layer all asparagus over cheese.
  • Sprinkle chopped eggs over asparagus.
  • Prepare cream sauce:.
  • Blend flour and butter over medium heat until it makes a paste.
  • Add liquid, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, until bubbly and thick, adding more liquid as needed.
  • Spread cream sauce over eggs.
  • On top of sauce, sprinkle pimento, remainder of cheese, topping with remaining Ritz cracker crumbs.
