Recipe by Tammi
"I had some wonderful asparagus that I found at a farmer's market that I wanted to use as a main dish. I found a recipe for an asparagus casserole that looked intriguing. I didn't have as much fresh asparagus as the recipe called for, so I decided to add green beans to the mix, along with a few other items to really give this casserole a bit more substance. This was the best casserole of any kind that I think I've ever had. My husband hasn't been able to stop eating it either, even the next day!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

fresh asparagus, trimmed
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (8 ounce)
precooked ham steak, diced - divided
crushed buttery round crackers
frozen green beans
French fried onions
shredded Cheddar cheese
I moderated the proportions of ingredients somewhat but the combination of flavors is 5 star tasty! First of all there seemed to be too much liquid in the recipe for a 2 quart casserole, and I found that 1 can of soup and 1/2 cup of chicken broth were perfect for us. I also cut the shredded cheese to one cup and mixed half with the other ingredients and sprinkled the rest on top. Also, due to preference/laziness I cut the asparagus into bite size pieces and mixed the ingredients (except for the onions) rather than layered them. Still, I want to emphasize that we loved the casserole, and will make regularly. Thanks!
This was really good! A better version of green bean casserole. Next time I think I'm going to cut the asparagus spears to the same length of the green beans.
I omitted the ham because I was using this as a side dish, & halved the soup & cheese, plus I mixed everything together, rather than layering(topped w/the fried onions). It was VERY good! It does remind me of green bean casserole, but has more of the asparagus flavor & texture.
I'm trying to cut some fat/calories from my diet, so I cut the soup/broth mixture by half and didn't add cheese. I also used crushed potato chips in place of the onions. It was really good!
My husband and I liked it, the kids were uncertain, but ate it anyway. I think that the crackers are not necessary really and I would chop the asparagus up a bit before steaming them, so the casserole is a little easier to serve and eat. Overall, a yummy casserole and inventive.
Too soupy for my taste, but the flavors were great. Made as recipe states, so I would probably cut the chicken broth in half or reduce the soup.
This was great. Very nice combo. I think it would be wonderful as a pot pie in pie crust shells...just mix everything, pour into a crust and top with another crust. I'll try that next time.
