Absolute love. Wouldn't have thought to do this but will be repeating frequently. I used a chevre gouda instead of the Parm and it was terrific. Can't wait for tomorrow lunch with the leftovers. Read More

This was really good! I heated the asparagus for 2 minutes and added grilled red bell peppers. I also toasted the bread first (we just used wheat bread). Made one for lunch tomorrow I hope it holds up well! Read More

Delicious! I used a sesame french bread cut on the diagonal and lots of fresh shaved parmesean. The asparagus is crisp tender and this really is a great spring appetizer! Thanks Dakotabear1 for submitting this recipe! Read More

Yummy! This was a great alternative for using asparagus. I used sour dough bread and toasted it placed the mayonnaise on one side and used green leaf lettuce with the steamed asparagus and parmesaen cheese and it was wonderful! Will definitely use again - thanks for the recipe! Read More

This is one of my favorites now! This tasted much better than I thought it would. I think fresh sliced tomatoes will make it even better next time. Read More
