    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.

    I loved this recipe and used it for part of our Easter meal and plan on using it every year. I do not care for the peppers so didn't use them and used mild cheddar instead of the sharp. I loved it but think next time I will also use sharp cheddar instead of the mild.

    This was pretty good... my DH went for seconds and my picky 6 year old even ate it. I modified it a bit. I used 1 lb of fresh asparagus, 4 tbsp butter total, 1 cup milk (1%) and substituted mozzarella for the cheddar. I also sprinkled in some seasoning salt to the milk mixture before pouring it on top of the asparagus. I'm not a huge asparagus fan so that's why only 4 stars. Overall it was good and I will make again. It's a good way to disguise the vegetables.
