      I want to say " I'm so please to be the first one to rate this recipe. " :) Since I used jarred asparagus, I'm only going to base my review on the sauce. I made the sauce exactly as it was written. And this was the first time I've ever used bacon "drippings " in a cheese sauce, and it won't be my last. :) I like eating Asparagus on occasion, but with this cheese sauce it will certainly be more often. Thanks for posting a recipe that will be made often. " Keep Smiling :) "
