My mother keeps us supplied with fresh asparagus from the huge patch she grows, and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I found this recipe in our local newspaper, and it has been a family favorite ever since.
MY SISTER created this recipe and shared it with me. I always serve it on special holidays, particularly Easter.
My husband says he hates asparagus, but he loves this casserole. He doesn't know he's eating his "enemy vegetable"!
