Quick and simple what more can you ask for in a meal - oh, yes flavor and yes that was good too. I felt the sauce was too thick will thin next time and I am not sure the extra cost for white asparagus was worth it, green would have worked just as well.

This was a really nice dinner. I had never had white asparagus before (except pickled in a bloody mary, lol). The sauce was thicker than I expected but was very good. I think that it would also be good if it was thinned out a bit too. Simple prep and tasty meal. Thanks Mom2Rose. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.
