"Really good! It made a great side dish with my chicken Tetrazzini or with any main dish that has a heavy cream sauce. This compliments it so well."

"This wasn't a big hit with an asparagus lover! The tangy flavor of the sauce only enhanged the bitterness of the asparagus. My taste testers ended up eating the asparagus plain! :("
