This was pretty good, but it needs "something" to really take it over the top. I used fresh asparagus and frozen peas to avoid them becoming complete mush during the baking process and this worked perfectly. I also subbed cream of celery soup instead of cream of mushroom, because we don't care for the flavor of canned C.O.M. soup. I think some sauteed garlic and onion layered directly on top of the asparagus would have been a big improvement, as well as perhaps a pinch of red pepper flakes. We really enjoyed the crunch added by the water chestnuts and the crunchy, buttery, cheesy bread pieces on top were fantastic. I followed a couple other reviewers' suggestions and cut the asparagus into 2-inch pieces and cut the bread into 1x2-inch strips to make it easier to scoop everything out onto our plates. I'm sure we'll have this again, with the addition of some onion and garlic and possibly using cream of chicken soup next time. Thanks for sharing!
