My family requests this dish on special occasions. The only thing different is that I steam the asparagus first. Yum!

I thought these were just ok. They weren't bad, they just weren't "wow" worthy.

This is a great appetizer and very easy to make. I added a little Tabasco sauce to my filling, and it really gave it some zip!

Big hit, even those who don't care for asparagus loved the appetizer. Wonderful leftover as well!

MY REVIEW

I made these for Easter Lunch and they were a huge hit, even for those who are otherwise not to keen on asparagus! Don't skimp on the cream cheese spread and you won't be sorry.

My only comment is that they need to be cooked for longer than 10-12 minutes to brown the Parmesan cheese. I found the time to be closer to 16-20 minutes in two different ovens. I don't want to shortchange the cooking of the asparagus, but might try also increasing the oven temp by 25 degrees (F) or so.
