      Absolutely loved the taste of this....I may have been a bit over generous with my Gorgonzola...just adore it! My sauce really didn't thicken up, but even so it clung to ever tender asparagus spear as they traveled to my mouth. Delicious!

      Absolutely delicious. Had a nice chunk of gorgonzola to use up and this was a great recipe to use part of it in. The rich gorgonzola is a great foil for the asparagus.
