Creamed Asparagus Soup

Creamed Asparagus Soup

"Cream cheese enriches this simple soup and enhances its fresh spring vegetable flavor. For a great presentation, puree soup without the cream cheese. Then mix cream cheese and milk into a pourable mixture and swirl in for a beautiful and flavorful finish. Garnish with asparagus tips."

I used the whole can of broth and no water so I wouldn't waste the extra broth but the soup was a ittle salty. Next time I won't add the extra salt or I'll use plain cream cheese. I went ahead ...

I usually try to stick to the recipe, but I had to make a couple of minor changes based on what I had on hand. Basically I doubled all the ingredients, except that I used 4 cups of chicken brot...
