Ham and Asparagus Gratin

1 can (10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Asparagus Soup
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups cooked cut asparagus (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups cubed cooked ham
3 cups hot cooked corkscrew-shaped pasta
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese OR Swiss cheese (or a combination of both!)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Mix soup, milk, onion powder, black pepper, asparagus, ham, pasta and 1/2 cup cheese in 2-qt. shallow baking dish.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 min. or until hot. Stir.
Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5 min. or until cheese is melted.

TIP: this is also good with leftover chicken or turkey too!!

My review: I like this. but then, what's not to like about pasta, asparagus, cheese, and meat? It's a good casserole for the summer to use up leftovers, and it is delicious paired with a nice fresh salad! yum!
