Reviews for Crumb-Topped Asparagus Casserole
"sorry, but I would never use this recipe, way too much fat, and salt."
"Not totally thrilled. Tasted more bland than expected."
"Crumb topped asparagus casserole is one my family loves and makes whenever we have all the ingredients. I don't eat it, as asparagus does not like me, but my kids eat it every chance they get, as it does not harm them at all. It's a keeper and going in my recipe box."
"I haven't made this but I think you could lighten this by adding celery and using 1 cup of sour cream or plain low-fat yogurt. Then you could do away with the soup, whipping cream and mayo."
"I haven't made this yet but it sounds delicious. The only problem I see is the nutrition information. Does anyone have any great ideas for lightening it? Would you use half and half and milk or just take out the whipping cream all together and use only soup?"
