Asparagus with Creamy Dill Sauce

Nothing says "spring" like a fresh crop of young asparagus. And this recipe superbly ushers in this wonderful season. The delicate cheese sauce and assorted seasonings nicely complement the tender stalks without being overwhelming. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    This sauce was amazing! We LOVED it! The funny thing is we actually had it with our salmon as well as the asparagus. The only thing I wish I would've done was make more! Great recipe!

    The cream cheese and dill bring out the taste of the asparagus quite nicely, its an easy dish, with this recipe i am now very much a fan of not so liked dreaded asparagus...Its very nice i will definately make this again.
