Asparagus and Ham roll ups

My wife made this for me before we were married and it may be the first time I remember really eating asparagus. I grew up in the country and if we didn't grow it we didn't eat it.

Glad my views have changed as I love asparagus and a whole lot of other foods now. I just read an article on how our taste has changed and I know I can eat more spicy and hot stuff (thanks to wife) than I did 20 years ago. Any way this is a really easy and impressive dish.

She can't remember where she got the recipe and she tore the house up looking for it but it was easy to remember. You can make as many or as few as you want. We used the last of the lasagna noodles we had from the lasagna the other night.
Lasagna noodles cooked to directions on pkg
heat oven to 350.
sliced deli ham
asparagus steamed or cooked till tender about 3 to 4 per role
Swiss cheese slices.
We also had some ricotta cheese we used but its not necessary.
hollandaise sauce.
salt and pepper to taste

Take one noodle and smooth layer of ricotta cheese place slice of swiss cheese, ham slices and 3 to 4 spears of asparagus role up and place in baking dish. seam side down.
Bake for 20 to 30 minutes covered.
Cook hollandise sauce. We cheated and used Knorr pkg mix.
Place roll up on dish and pour sauce over and serve.

My husband had never eaten asparagus either. Same thing they only ate what they grew.

Looks good. Funny how we like something and forget to make it again.

Have a good weekend and wonderful holiday.

Great idea with the lasagna noodles!! You could put anything in them. Chicken breast with broccoli, parmesan, cheese sauce would be good too!

We do grow asparagus and LOVE it! Its our favourite vegetable. Too bad it is so short lived and doesn't freeze that well.

We can not grow asparagus down here or its a little hard not cool enough. Wish we could as we love it also.We did freeze some last year and it wasn't bad.
