Reviews for Asparagus with Creamy Dill Sauce
"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!"
"The cream cheese and dill bring out the taste of the asparagus quite nicely, its an easy dish, with this recipe i am now very much a fan of not so liked dreaded asparagus...Its very nice i will definately make this again."
