    have made this several times as directed but had 1 daughter request turkey instead for dietary reasons. Used sliced turkey sandwich meat and it turned out great! I now make it alternating turkey and ham wraps to accommodate everyone at the table and very rarely are there leftovers for my meal at work!

    This will be the second time I have made this wonderful recipe,the only change I made was add a bit more cheese and some garlic. The flavors blend so nicely, and a great meal for company! Yummy!!

    I used skim milk and reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese and it tasted great! What wonderful way to use asparagus!
