    Katzen's Note:

    I found this recipe while looking for recipes for ZWT-Spain - this is served either as tapas, or in larger portions for lunch or dinner. You can substitute cheddar, Monterey jack, or mozzarella for the manchego cheese.

      I had this for lunch and delicious! I used frozen baby asparagus (i find EB's better than the woody fresh right now) and subbed cheddar for the cheese.
