I made this dish for a visiting minister and my Pastor's family and they loved it. Served with 'Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits' and a rhubarb crisp. The minister thank me several times for this meal. Made this for my husband and will will definitely have this again!

I would make this again, however, I'd use low sodium soup and broth cause it seemed a bit too salty. Otherwise my family enjoyed it.

This was a great recipe and easy to make. However, the next time I make it I will add more ham to the casserole or use a little less rice. Had it for dinner as a leftover a few nights ago and it was even more tasty. Will definitely make this again.

I had potatoes to use up, so I replaced almost 3 cups of cooked cubed potatoes for the cooked rice, and it turned out great :) The combination of the asparagus and the ham makes it very flavorful!

THIS WOULD BE GOOD TO MAKE WHEN DENNY AND ANN ARE HERE. COULD BE MADE AHEAD.
