Soooo Good! So very easy! The asparagus is perfectly cooked and the sauce adds a tiny bit of sweetness. I must confess that I didn't have time to let it reduce all the way down to 1/4 cup and I bet its even better if you do. Even without the reduction, this is a great way to serve asparagus. Thanks Bev! I will make this again and again.

Great recipe, I should have rated this a long time ago, i've been using the recipe for almost a year, Very tasty and the presentation is excellent, which I feel is important when I have guests.I served it last week with fresh Atlantic Salmon with a leek lemon cream sauce ( not low fat) and a baked potato. Guests loved it. Thanks

A delicious dish that is really quick to make. The asparagus was crisp tender and the sauce added a very delicate flavor. This was served with chicken and rice. I think this sauce would also be good over fresh steamed broccoli.

Excellent way to prepare asparagus. I substituted chicken broth for the vegetable broth, but otherwise made the recipe as written. The orange sauce adds a wonderful flavor.

Great recipe! I allowed proper time for the sauce to reduce, it did not take very long at all - and it tasted wonderful with the fresh asparagus. I will make this again, for sure. Thanks Bev!

Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed by this recipe. It took forever to reduce the sauce, and I don't think we ever got to the 1/4C but I had to get dinner on the table. Mostly the sauce was soup and the asparagus didn't get much of it and therefore, didn't have much of anything but an asparagus taste. Sorry, but this just didn't work for us.
