We enjoy asparagus with cheese sauce as a light lunch in spring. While the weather is still getting over winter but as soon as asparagus hits the shelves this makes a warming snack combined with the taste of spring. Once the salad crops get into swing in the garden we switch over to salad but until then this recipe hits the spot.
It also makes a great appetizer with prawns.
