This was a fantastic basic (and easy) recipe. I DID adjust spices/herbs according to my personal tastes. I crumbled up some home-made bread (bread machine) in the bottom, added the asparagus and plenty of cheese on top. I sprinkled some thyme and chives on top of the cheese, along with some salt and 3-4 slivers of butter. To make the "dry-sounding" combination less dry, I heated up 1/2 cup of milk with a chicken-garlic boullion cube, and poured that on top.
My husband and I loved it. So I made it for the church dinner today - it was the Sunday for the bishop's annual visit. I made a bigger casserole version, only adding some bite-sized pieces of deli turkey on top of the asparagus before adding the shredded cheese. Oh, yes. This time I also chopped the asparagus into bite-sized pieces to make it easier for individuals to get "just a taste" if they so wished. Everyone loved it. There was nothing left of it by the time my husband made it through toward the end of the line of people.
Some reviewers and their families didn't like it. But if you go back to read ALL of the reviews, you'll find that opinions are divided.
If you want to try this easy recipe, add whatever spices/herbs you usually add to veggies, along with some kind of liquid with boullion dissolved in it - with the bread crumbs on the bottom so that they won't be further dried out when baked.
