Wonderful sauce for asparagus

Happy tax day to everyone in the U.S.! For those of you not in the U.S.,
congratulations---April 15 is always a nutty day here...

This recipe was posted on the MC list and was also in Taste of Home
magazine. It's a wonderful sauce for asparagus. We loved it! I don't think
I've seen it posted on this list (although I'm kinda blurry this
morning---guess who waited until the last minute to do her taxes?  8-)), so
I thought I'd pass along the recipe.

NOTES : Weight Watchers points per serving: 1/2

This sauce is wonderful! Really dresses up the asparagus and makes you feel
like you're eating something sinful. You can begin the sauce even after you
start cooking the asparagus!

This was the highlight of our Easter meal this year! No one could resist
this light, creamy sauce.  It made the entire plate look elegant.  My
thanks go to Taste of Home field editor Cathee Bethel of Lebanon, Oregon,
for recommending it.
