We have asparagus almost every day during the short Midwest growing season. This quick pizza-like dish is great for a luncheon or a light dinner, or as an appetizer. For variety, you can saute half a pound of sliced fresh mushrooms with the onion and garlic. —Judy Wagner, Chicago, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Cut asparagus into 1-in. pieces; set the tips aside. Add remaining asparagus to skillet; saute until crisp-tender. Add asparagus tips and pepper; saute 1-2 minutes longer or until asparagus is tender.
  3. Press dough into an ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; seal seams and perforations. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
  4. Top with asparagus mixture; sprinkle with cheeses. Bake 6-8 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Cut into squares.
