Recipe Comments & Reviews

When I made this recipe, I used Land O'Lakes fat free half and half, and the results were great. I did use extra half and half, and extra cheese, resulting in a quick and very creamy sauce...a definite 'make again'.
The sauce did not make very much at all, and it was super clumpy. I had to make my own sauce to save the meal and not waste the food.
This is a wonderful recipe. Quick and easy to prepare. Always used parsley or spinach for the green. Asparagus' waht a wonderful choice.EXCELLENT
