"This is a great vegetarian sandwich that even meat-lovers will like! I came up with this idea after having an asparagus sandwich at a restaurant that my husband and I both loved. It is quick and easy and so yummy!"

fresh asparagus, trimmed
red bell pepper, seeded and quartered
shredded Swiss cheese
ripe tomato, sliced
These sandwiches are AMAZING!! I piled on the asparagus since I made extra. My husband even enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again.
be sure to snip asperagus to length you want on the bread. remove there hard, sour bottom parts! Unappealing in my sandwich. :( was otherwise a delicious variation. i left out pepper as I don't care for them.
Even my non-vegetarian husband loved these! I used jarred roasted peppers and made the sauce with a couple more of them in the mini-food processor. Thanks for a great recipe!
This was so good! The roasted red pepper goes so well with the Asparagus. The swiss cheese didn't overpower the taste of the asparagus either. Toasty and tastey. The dressing was a little runny, but it was good. I think this sandwich would make up nicely as a paninni too.
This was a great, very filling lunch. I was testing things that would be good for Lent, and came across this recipe, though I made a few changes to mine: Used 1/2 lb asparagus for one sandwich, fresh mozzarella, multi-grain bread, and left out the peppers, since I did not have any on hand. I didn't find it too messy, but I only eyeballed and probably didn't put in as much lemon so it could spread better. I loved the texture of the mozz. with the asparagus, and creating this with the peppers and a more flavorful cheese will definitely be on my list in the future. Especially with all of the possible variations, this one is a keeper.

OK, this sandwich is MESSY! Asparagus, tomato slices, mayo sauce - all just sliding or running out as you bite into it.... Maybe I didn't do it right, but it was still really, really tasty! I'm a card-carrying carnivore and the only veggie sandwich I've ever even considered is the standard Portabella/grilled pepper/goat cheese sandwich. Well, this asparagus sandwich can definitely compete! I'd think twice before throwing those burger patties on the grill. Really! Very, very satisfying!
DELICIOUS! I added a bit of salt and used vegan mayo and sharp cheddar!
