Kitchen Tips
Serving Suggestion
Serve with a mixed green salad to round out the meal.
How to Easy Peel the Asparagus
When peeling asparagus near the bottom of each spear, place the thin spear on top of a flat wooden spatula handle. This will raise the asparagus off the work surface to allow you to shave the last few strips.
Prepare using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese.
