Easy, fast, cheap and healthy. Our family eats this as dinner at least once a week! Fantastic!

This is a very good soup with a bright, crisp flavor. It would be the perfect spring soup, but also add a little cheer to gray, rainy days.

I love this soup and have made it several times. The only lemon I used was the fresh lemon. You can't go wrong with fresh lemon juice! This is a wonderful fresh tasting soup. The egg, orzo, lemon and asparagus worked well together.
