Thank you for posting this. I had a bunch of asparagus, a ton of pasta, and no idea what to make for dinner, so this was a lifesaver! It was easy and delicious. My DH enjoyed it too. We only wished it had been a tad creamier, so next time I might try reducing the broth and adding some cream at the end. I did try adding 1/2 cup frozen peas, which gave it some nice variety.
I really liked this soup, particularly the next day after everything sunk in. It became really thick and yummy! Of course, we ended up putting the pasta in too soon so I don't know if that had something to do with it?
