Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce Recipe

Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce Recipe

MY SISTER introduced me to this recipe several years ago because she knows I love blue cheese. This dish is a simple way to dress up asparagus, giving it a tangy taste altogether different from the usual cheese sauce. I make it every spring when we have fresh homegrown asparagus. —Leona Luecking West Burlington, Iowa
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound fresh asparagus spears

"To avoid the ads in the printed copy, go to the Print, etc. box at the right of the recipe, click on Print & then choose 3/5, etc. (size). Print copy will not have any extra non-recipe text on it....."

"What I do in this case is, copy the recipe into Word, then you can delete items or add comments.  I also make folders for different web sites.  Hope this helps.Smile"

"I realize that places like this need to advertise but I rather object to those same adds being put on the bottom of the "print" pages. I just wanted to print the recipe, NOT the ads. CBrumfield"
