  • Rinse and snap the asparagus (take a handful of asparagus, hold them by both ends, and bend – they will snap apart – discard the bottom portion, and use the top)

  • mix the garlic, onion, and salt into the broth mixture
  • Grease a casserole dish
  • Place the asparagus into the dish
  • pour the broth mixture over the asparagus

For a crunchy top, you can sprinkle panko bread crumbs or fried onion bits over the cheese before baking

For golden cheese topping – broil for 2 minutes after casserole has cooked
