    In 2-quart saucepan, steam asparagus in 1/2 inch water 6 to 10 minutes or until tender; drain. Cut up. Stir in pizza sauce. Add onion, garlic, olive oil and tomatoes. Simmer 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Expert Tips

*All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.

You can use your own leftover cooked chicken in place of purchased rotisserie chicken.

Serve 2 or 3 poppers as a dinner entrée. You won’t have to call them twice to the dinner table!
