    The Swiss cheese is a nice touch and the recipe has a nice balance. This could also be a very versatile base for lots of experimentation. High 5

    I think you would. It doubles easily too for a larger crowd. My brother-in-law who doesn't like asparagus very much liked this casserole a lot! I hope you get to try it.. Then let me know. Thanks.
