I know that I just did a post on asparagus risotto, but I couldn't resist doing another post using asparagus.  There was an AMAZING sale this past week on asparagus at our local Sprouts Market.  I love asparagus, but think of it mostly for special meals.  Anyway, Sprouts had asparagus for $.88 per pound.  $.88 PER POUND!!! That's practically unheard of! Needless to say, our fridge is packed with asparagus right now.  Of course, I don't want any of it to go bad, so I'm trying to think of different ways to use it all up.  This creamy asparagus soup with potato and topped with Parmesan cheese was a perfect way for the fam to enjoy my bounty.

I actually can't remember the last time I had asparagus soup, but I'm told it was one of my favorite foods as a baby.  I guess, I've always had good taste LOL.  This was my first time trying to make asparagus soup, and I am very happy with the way it turned out.  This recipe is going to see a lot of action in the future for sure.
