Nothing says "spring" like a fresh crop of young asparagus. And this recipe superbly ushers in this wonderful season. The delicate cheese sauce and assorted seasonings nicely complement the tender stalks without being overwhelming.

This sauce was amazing! We LOVED it! The funny thing is we actually had it with our salmon as well as the asparagus. The only thing I wish I would've done was make more! Great recipe!
