Asparagus soup is perfect with the brightness of lemon and just a bit of parmesan cheese: an ideal light soup, easy recipe you can make any time of year. Lemon and parmesean are perfectly pared with asparagus. So easy you can make it for dinner tonight. I love easy recipes, full of flavor that impress the people I am serving.
