Mmmmm!!! I used the suggestions of others here and omitted the water and used half the milk and broth. I didn't have all the listed ingredients so I used these substitutions: 3/4 Cup chicken broth (broth from Amanda's chicken casserole recipe preparation [not published]) Havarti cheese for the parmesan It was incredible! I really want to use this on other vegebables using different kinds of broth.


This was a good starter recipe. I omitted the water and broth and only used 1 3/4 cups of milk. I also left out the sage and used 1/4 tsp of basil, 1/4 tsp of dill weed, and 2 tsp of garlic powder. Instead of parmesan, I used fontina cheese. I also steamed the asparagus and poured the cheese sauce over the asparagus rather than cooking the asparagus in with the sauce.


This was good. I used a pound of asparagus, eliminated the water, used 3/4 c broth, and only a splash or two of milk. Still there was too much liquid - I ended up thickening it a bit with some corn starch, and straining away the extra liquid upon serving. The Parm cheese did not want to melt when I mixed it in - it just got clumpy. Next time, I'll just sprinkle with cheese when ready to serve.
