      I steamed the asparagus. And then made the sauce. It was done in just a few minutes. Very good but next time I'll add more dijon mustard. Thanks Sharon :) Made for Holiday tag game

      This is one great sauce! I loved it! We all loved it! I didn't change anything, this is perfect the way it is. The white pepper gives this sauce the littlest kick, (you can hardly tell) but enough to really set this apart from other sauces. I only added the pimentos for the coloring in the photo, but it was nice touch too. Thanks for posting!

      A lovely light sauce to flavor your veggies. I had quite a bit extra an also served it with steamed broccoli the following day. For myself, I used a bit less cornstarch to create a thinner sauce as well as a fairly sharp Dijon mustard. Thanks Sharon123.
