Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce

MY SISTER introduced me to this recipe several years ago because she knows I love blue cheese. This dish is a simple way to dress up asparagus, giving it a tangy taste altogether different from the usual cheese sauce. I make it every spring when we have fresh homegrown asparagus. —Leona Luecking West Burlington, Iowa

    Made this for Mother's Day Dinner. It was a huge hit with mom, who loves blue cheese.

    To avoid the ads in the printed copy, go to the Print, etc. box at the right of the recipe, click on Print & then choose 3/5, etc. (size). Print copy will not have any extra non-recipe text on it.....

    What I do in this case is, copy the recipe into Word, then you can delete items or add comments.  I also make folders for different web sites.  Hope this helps.

    I realize that places like this need to advertise but I rather object to those same adds being put on the bottom of the "print" pages. I just wanted to print the recipe, NOT the ads. CBrumfield
