A nice fancy way to serve asparagus if you are having dinner guests. I steamed fresh asparagus and drizzled this sauce over it, serving while hot. I think the cheese gives this dish enough salt flavor, but it was fine with a bit added also. This was rich and tasty - a real treat. Thanks for posting!
