    I cut this recipe in half for my family. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I liked the taste of the cheese sauce with the asparagus juice in it. My cheese sauce was pretty thick so I added a bit of milk to thin it up a bit. Next time I would cut the flour back a bit. This was a nice change for us. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
