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.
