Quick Asparagus Pizza

Welcome to the March Fantastical Food Fight sponsored by Sarah Ellis.  We are so happy to have such a wonderful and organized host for our monthly party!  This month we are sharing with you all things asparagus.  Soon you will be seeing asparagus shoots coming up and it will be time to starting
eating these early spring treats.



I am sharing my Quick Asparagus Pizza that can be used as a lovely dinner or as an appetizer when shared. It is so easy and so delicious that my family can have it any time they wish.  We keep blanched asparagus in our refrigerator which speeds up the process as well.


Storing blanched asparagus is easy.  Drain on paper towels, then using dry paper towels, wrap the asparagus and place in a zip-style storage bag.  Lasts about 3 days.
