This was quick for a last minute lunch. 4 stars only because I did not like the tomato in the soup. I followed the recipe and it turned out tasty, after spooning out the tomatoes. Thank you!

I was looking for a quick soup to make on a rainy evening that used both asparagus and potatoes, and found this recipe. It was very tasty, without any adjustments in seasoning or major changes. I was missing a few ingredients, so subbed plain yogurt for sour cream, some grape tomatoes for a regular tomato, and 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese for the cheddar. My husband and I both really liked it and will definitely enjoy it again sometime soon!
