I created this casserole one day while trying to find a good recipe for leftover ham. Instead of resorting to scalloped potatoes and ham, or ham and noodles, I tried asparagus. Everyone liked it so well, I've made it ever since.—Helen Ostronic, Omaha, Nebraska

"I made this dish for a visiting minister and my Pastor's family and they loved it. Served with 'Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits' and a rhubarb crisp. The minister thank me several times for this meal. Made this for my husband and will will definitely have this again!"

"I would make this again, however, I'd use low sodium soup and broth cause it seemed a bit too salty. Otherwise my family enjoyed it."

"This was a great recipe and easy to make. However, the next time I make it I will add more ham to the casserole or use a little less rice. Had it for dinner as a leftover a few nights ago and it was even more tasty. Will definitely make this again."

"I had potatoes to use up, so I replaced almost 3 cups of cooked cubed potatoes for the cooked rice, and it turned out great :) The combination of the asparagus and the ham makes it very flavorful!"
