Cheesy Asparagus and Potato Soup

Wendy Rusch


A wonderful warm and cozy soup for crisp fall nights and cold winter days...

My daughter often requests this soup...I had lost the recipe until a member here asked me about it, since I had commented on it, in a group. So I started a mission to find it and I did!!! My daughter will be so happy to have it back!

I do often add chopped mushrooms to this when I add the onion.

This is best the next day! Make it when you have time, toss into refrigerator and heat to serve.

Enjoy!!! :o)
