Asparagus with pepper jack cheese sauce

This is one of those quick and easy recipes you can throw together in just a few minutes. In fact, you can cook the entire dish in the microwave! I almost classified this one in the low carb recipes section because it is very low carb. I served this with my Chili Lime Skillet Steak.
