    OK, I know yer out there... a current thread proves it. Indulge me with $2.50 and check it out:

    Trim 'em within 6" of the top, wash and set aside. Fire up a skillet on low with 1 large clove chopped garlic and EVOO. Insert the "A" word. Add a little CBP after about a min. of the sautee'. Remove from heat after 2 min. DO NOT BURN GARLIC.

    Get some breadcrumbs <I prefer Progresso Italian> and parmesean cheese, fresh grated if ya can, and mix 50-50, for about a cup and a half total. Add a bit, maybe a teaspoon of rosemary, and a few healthy cranks of CBP and a teaspoon of kosher salt. Set aside.

    Wipe a baking dish with EVOO and coat bottom with a thin layer of the breadcrumb mix. Then alternating tip directon- lay a layer of the "A" word on top. Grate a bit of mozzerella on top, then more crumb mix. More "A" word as before etc... till out of something. Top with maybe 6 butter pats and mozzerella to cover.

    Bake covered at 350 for maybe .5 hr, look for bubbles. Uncover and give it 10 more min to crisp up on top.

    I defy you to hate this...money back guarentee!

    Rich that sounds absolutely delicious. Would you mind terribly if I included a bit of crisp chopped bacon during the layering?

    Thanks for sharing and I already love the stuff when I can get it reasonably. Will be producing my own soon.

    Cheers!

    asparagus is one of life's pleasures....cream soup, sides, grilled, steamed, baby ones, fat ones.....lotsa butter. It's those brussel sprouts I can't understand!

    The only veg I don't like are the ones in cans. Fresh asparagus on the grill with evoo, s&p, and lemon juice. My fav! I will have to try your recipe Richt
    Brussle sprouts sauted with some olive oil and stock with crumbled bacon... YUM!
