Asparagus Snack Squares Recipe

We have asparagus almost every day during the short Midwest growing season. This quick pizza-like dish is great for a luncheon or a light dinner, or as an appetizer. For variety, you can saute half a pound of sliced fresh mushrooms with the onion and garlic. —Judy Wagner, Chicago, Illinois

MY REVIEW

This was such a hit with my husband who is very honest whenever I make a new recipe. One of his first comments was "You can definitely make this again!" It is also very good as a side dish with almost any type of entree.

Even the men liked this one. It was very good. Just a nice and different snack. And not too rich, just right. Will make this again during the summer with fresh asparagus.

Was the spread you used one from the store or one you made yourself?  If from the store, could you give the brand name.  If you made it yourself, would you share the recipe?
