I cut the recipe down because there's just the 2 of us and it was wonderful. Followed exactly and wouldn't change a thing. Made for PAC Spring 2010.

Not leaving stars, because I cooked my asparagus too long. I wanted to note that, although I was afraid there wouldn't be enough sauce that there ended up being an ample amount, so make it as written and check it out before you increase it (as I started to do)! This does create an elegant looking dish.
