Seeing I haven't posted in quite a while, I thought that I would post
lowfat from the Taste of Home Lowfat Country Cooking. Out of 455 recipes I
only have 44 formatted. Plan on formatting the rest this week. Hope you all
enjoy these.

Cook asparagus in a small amount of water until tender. Drain, reserving
1/4 cup liquid. Cool. Puree asparagus until smooth. Add 1 cup sour cream
and the cream cheese; blend well. In a saucepan, combine gelatin and
reserved liquid; heat slowly until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from
the heat; stir in the asparagus mixture, ham, chives and pepper. Pour into
a 1-quart round-bottom bowl coated with nonstick cooking spray. Cover and
chill until set, about 6 hours. Unmold onto a plate and spread with
reserved sour cream. Garnish with additional ham and asparagus if desired.
Serve with crackers.

NOTES : the first time I made this spread was for a potluck get-together.
It received such great comments that I've been making it ever since. The
asparagus and ham pair nicely with smooth sour cream and cream cheese.
