Fresh asparagus is blanched then sauteed in butter and garlic. Served over linguine pasta with a rich lemon cream sauce. Makes a great midweek meal.
Altered ingredient amounts. This was a pretty good sauce with a lot of potential. It definately took longer than 10 mintues to thicken, so plan on at least 20 minutes (and be flexible in cheating by adding a bit more roux (1 tablespoon each melted butter and flour mixed well) to help speed things up). As far as flavour, I felt this recipe needed quite a bit more lemon to spruce it up. The lemon and asparagus go wonderfully together, so don't be shy. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This is quite good and very easy to make. I thought it needed something more so I put in fresh mushrooms and it added a lot of flavour. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This is a good recipe but we added sun dried tomatos, a little cream cheese(to thicken the sauce), and fresh parmesan cheese all to the sauce while it was cooking. It was very tasty! - 29 Sep 2008
