Spray a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with PAM. Layer ingredients as listed below: Sprinkle some of the sun-dried tomato
mixture on the bottom of the casserole dish. Place lasagna sheets single layered in the pan, then half of asparagus
mixture. Next sprinkle some mozzarella cheese and some of the remaining 3/4 cup Parmesan. Continue for 1 more
