      Love it! I used 1 and a half times the fresh asparagus. It's a little thin with skim milk, so I add a cup of instant mashed potato flakes to thicken it a little. YUMMY! (We actually tried this recipe last summer, but since I'm getting ready to go home and make it for the third time since then, I figure it's about time to rate it.)

      I really liked this recipe! I used a 10-ounce package of frozen asparagus and forgot to adjust the liquids accordingly, so I thought it would be too watery, but it didn't taste thin at all. I used low-fat soy milk, and it was very tasty, although I was a bit too liberal with the salt and pepper. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I used skim milk, so it turned out a little too thin, but the flavor was really great.
