Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 8

12 Ounce(s) Light sour cream, divided
8 Ounce(s) Light cream cheese, softened
1 Envelope unflavored gelatin

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. Serving Size: 1/8 recipe Calories: 153, Total

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. Recipe
