Creamy Baked Asparagus and Peas

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Mrs. Kulik

This makes a nice home-style side dish, without the use of actual fatty cream, since flour is used to thicken milk instead.

This was an awesome side dish and easy to make. I put the frozen peas into the boiling water when the asparagus was tender, stired and drained. I well use 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper in the recipe next time.

  6. Add flour and stir in the milk.
  7. Cook until it starts to thicken.
  8. Stir in salt, pepper, and parsley.
