Notes

  • This is a fresh asparagus casserole; however, canned asparagus could be used. Be sure to drain well and then proceed with the rest of the recipe steps. 
  • Do not overcook the asparagus when boiling unless you like a really mushy asparagus casserole. I prefer my asparagus to have a little bite to it.  If you do not, go ahead and boil it longer.
  • Try substituting in a different flavor of cream soup for a new spin on this asparagus casserole with cream of mushroom soup recipe.
  • Substitute margarine for butter, if needed.
  • Any type of shredded cheese and any type of crushed crackers will work in this easy asparagus casserole recipe 
  • Serve along side Grilled Pork Steak and Cucumbers and Onions for the perfect summer meal!
