Spoon a very small amount of sauce over the asparagus. fold one end of the crepe in towards the centre & overlap the other end over it. Arrange the crepes, folded side down, in an oiled, shallow baking dish. Spoon remaining sauce evenly over the crepes. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until just heated through. Serve at once.
