Tips  

Here's a quick and easy casserole with lots of flavor and color. Use any flavor of cream soup you have on hand. Break off tough ends of asparagus by breaking off the stalk as far down as it snaps easily. This is a fast and sure way of removing any of the stalk that isn't tender.

Add 1 cup cubed fully cooked smoked turkey ham with asparagus in step 2. Continue as directed.
