If you want to, you can even put this casserole together the night before, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate it until it’s time to fix dinner the next evening. It only bakes for 30-40 minutes, which gives you more than enough time to set the table, put together the salad, and steam the broccoli.

Here’s The Gameplan

If you’re using frozen asparagus, take the asparagus spears out of the freezer and put them in the refrigerator to thaw the night before. If you forget (and I do about half the time), take them out of the freezer in the morning and leave them on the counter to thaw.

In the evening, preheat the oven while you construct the casserole. I would suggest doing the cheese sauce just before you need it. After the casserole is put together, slip it in the oven and bake it for 30 to 40 minutes.

If you’re serving the casserole that night, then go ahead and set the table, then put together the salad and place it on the table.

Ten minutes before the casserole is ready, steam the broccoli spears either in a steamer basket on top of the stove or in your microwave. Drain if necessary and season with butter, salt, and pepper as desired.

Place the broccoli in a serving dish, take the casserole out of the oven, and take it to the table.

Now you sit down for a well-deserved, relaxing meal!
