This was fast and easy to make so I will give it 4 stars, but it was a little bland. I put a little extra bouillon in it to give it more taste. It would probably taste good with rice or small pasta in it.

I didn't have fresh aspargus, but had a jar. It was wonderful. I will try again with fresh. Thanks for sharing
