    Very Good
    This was really quite good and tasted surprisingly sophisticated considering how quick and easy it was. It got rave reviews from the household, too. The sauce is quite thin (but flavorful) and goes a long way. I doubled the asparagus and there was still sauce left over afterwards. - 4/20/08
