Reviews for Asparagus and Ham Casserole
"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."
"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!"
"THIS WOULD BE GOOD TO MAKE WHEN DENNY AND ANN ARE HERE. COULD BE MADE AHEAD."
