Your recipe sounds wonderful! I'm the only asparagus lover in the family but I'm eager to try this out just for me!
Yes Cade is 6 going on 45 He lost a tooth on monday and the permanent tooth has already filled in his open space, seems it had come in behind the baby tooth. Non the less he is proud as a peacock over not crying when he pulled it out...I bet his teacher was thrilled though!
Pa, one nice thing about this recipe, you can make a small amount and use the rest of the asparagus in something else. When my kids were little I use to mix it into a fritatta with other green veggies like spinach and artichokes, making sure to chop the asparagus really small, when mixed with the other veggies, eggs and cheese and baked they never knew the asparagus was there

Clienta,
I'm glad i pushed your memory buttons These are good aren't they..My DH even ate some today. He likes asparagus, but shy's away from what he calls girly food Today he just dug right in...

CJ, if you want to adopt a mom, I'm available! Those sound so good.

I grew up on canned asparagus, and thought it was good. I still like the canned spears, just straight out of the can. The one time my mother cooked the fresh stuff, I thought it was awful. Mom wasn't all that gifted as a cook, though. Kim and I love it now.

Hi Connie,
consider yourself adopted I don't care for the canned, but that goes for most veggies except tiny peas and corn..The rolls turned out really well. Of course dunking in the butter helped and all that nice cheese...YUM

I'd never liked asparagus until I had it fresh and have been eating lots of it ever since.

I forgot my boiling asparagus one evening. When I finally remembered I cooled them and thought - well, they just won't be crunchy. EWWWWWWWWW - they tasted EXACTLY like canned asparagus. I was really never hoping to be reminded of that flavor ever again!

cj - GREAT recipe!!!!!! Those would go great with a tomato pie or even a Caesar salad!
