Asparagus with cheese sauce for Microwave
Asparagus is one of my favorite vegetables. Add cheese sauce and you have a winner. The recipe I am sharing with you today is a very quick and easy side-dish that will be ready in 10 minutes while you work on your main dish. The asparagus in cheese sauce is low in fat and high in iron and fiber. You can also swap the asparagus for any other vegetable you desire and use the same cheese sauce.
