I found this to be easy and delicious! I did have to cook the asparagus longer than 5 minutes in order to make them tender, but it didn't make this any more work. I was pleasantly surprised by the manchego, which i had never tried. We served this with spicy honey-brushed chicken thighs and some long grain and wild rice. It was lovely to be able to cook the whole meal while rice cooked. I would definitely make this again.

I really liked this, but my husband didn't. I would have given it a 4 had he liked it.
