  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and cheddar cheese soup until there are no lumps. Fold in the shrimp.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

My grandmother asks for this recipe every time I serve it! I use fresh asparagus and shrimp. It makes the texture and flavor sooo much better, without jacking up the price too much.
