A few months ago, I was at home helping my Mom pack up the house for my parents big move. She was having a friend over for dinner that night and had decided to make this Chicken and Asparagus dish for us. From the look on my face, she could tell I wasn’t impressed… Chicken and Asparagus just doesn’t sound exciting enough for company.

But she insisted that I would adore it… and that it would impress. She mentioned that it was an old recipe that my Nonna used to make, so I started to have faith. And that though the ingredients sound simple, the result is creamy, saucy, decadent and crazy healthy!
