"I love this recipe! I followed the recipe pretty close but I didn't have a steam basket so I just boiled the asparagus for about 4 minutes to get them tender. For my seasoning I used lemon pepper and some garlic powder. I also tossed in a fresh minced garlic clove right when the mushrooms were about done and I tossed in green onions because I had those fresh and not chives. I also did not have enough milk on hand so I used half milk and half chicken broth. Turned out great! The cheese was pretty sticky and not as smooth like a sauce should be but we still loved it. The flavor of the Swiss cheese was perfect!"

"This was delicious and flavorful! I made it with 1.5 cups of milk instead and steamed the asparagus in the microwave to save time and dishes. Wonderful! My husband thought the sauce might hold up better on fettuccine rather than angel hair."

"Disappointed, but after following the recipe we found it still rather devoid of flavor. :("
