Roasted Asparagus with Smoky Gouda Cheese Sauce

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This side dish comes together quickly making it perfect for a weeknight but also fancy enough to serve to guests with a holiday meal. The smoked gouda lends a rich flavor that pairs nicely with the asparagus. The sauce would also be great on roasted broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts."
