Asparagus and Ham Casserole

Rated as 4.23 out of 5 Stars

"I created this casserole one day while trying to find a good recipe for leftover ham. Instead of resorting to scalloped potatoes and ham, or ham and noodles. I tried asparagus. Everyone liked it so well, I've made it ever since.--Helen Ostronic, Omaha, Nebraska"

Okay, Helen: 5 stars! This was excellent. And it gets better every day. I made a few modifications, but that is just a matter of personal preference. Cheers!

I don't know if it was the type of Lemon pepper I used, but this was way too peppery.
