"I enjoyed this very much. Very light and fresh tasting. I ended up substituting broccoli for the asparagus since that's what I had on hand. I also threw in some fresh spinach that I needed to use up. Like another reviewer, I also added some chicken broth to the veggies as they were saut?ing so they didn't dry out. Will make again!!!"

"This was very good! I did substitute half and half for the heavy cream, and since I do not like tomatoes, I added mushrooms and broccoli (and a splash of chicken broth to the sauce to make it go farther). I would definitely make this again!!"
