Step 2

Spray 2 quart (9X13 inch) Oven Casserole Dish with Butter Spray or grease with butter.

Step 3

Line bottom of casserole dish with a layer of 1 1/2 to 2 cups Pepperidge Farms Herb Stuffing (Blue Bag).

Step 4

Spread out contents of 2 cans of Del Monte Fresh Cut Asparagus across the stuffing mix.

Step 5

Drizzle the juice of 1 fresh lemon over the asparagus. Nita's Note: Microwave lemon about 10 seconds before squeezing and you will get more juice.

Step 6

Melt 1 stick Butter over low heat being careful NOT to brown or burn it, OR, place butter in a microwave safe dish, cover dish with waxed paper and microwave it for about 35 seconds. Pour melted butter over asparagus and stuffing mix.

Step 7

Combine 1/4 cup Half & Half or milk with 1 can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup and 2 tablespoons chopped pimento (optional), drained. Pour over asparagus and stuffing mix.

Step 8
