Asparagus and Shrimp Casserole
2 (8 oz) packages whipped cream cheese spread 1 (11 oz) can condensed cheese soup 2 (4 oz) cans shrimp, drained 3 (15 oz) cans asparagus, drained 1 (6 oz) can French-fried onions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and cheddar cheese soup until there are no lumps. Fold in the shrimp. Arrange the asparagus in a 9x13 inch casserole dish. They should be arranged so that the head to tail end of the asparagus are alternated. Pour the cheese and shrimp mixture over the asparagus. Use a spatula to spread the soup around evenly. Be careful not to tear asparagus. Make sure there is at least 1/2 an inch of space between the top of the ingredients and the top of casserole dish because the casserole will boil while cooking. Bake covered in a preheated 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) oven for 35 minutes. After 35 minutes, uncover and crush fried onions on top of casserole and cook for the remaining 10 minutes uncovered.
