Asparagus Snack Squares Recipe

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
