MY REVIEW

First try at making any soup with asparagus - don't believe I'll try any other. The taste is scrumptious with just the right amount of thickness. Low calorie and everyday ingredients. A definite "have again".

For the past few weks, Our local market has had asparagus on sale for $.99 a pound! My husband and I have enjoyed it quite often lately and agreed this soup is our favorite! Perfect Lenten supper with good Wisconsin cheese and crackers!
