Asparagus and Ham Casserole Recipe

Asparagus and Ham Casserole Recipe

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 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!"
