Asparagus with Creamy Garlic Mustard Sauce Recipe

My favorite recipes are those that are special enough for company, yet easy to make. My second favorite recipes are those that are healthy, yet taste great. This tender asparagus dish fits both categories! —Coleen McCrea Katz, Havertown, Pennsylvania
