@snowywinter: This is a great recipe for spring soup with asparagus. You need the following ingredients:
1 can (14 ½ oz.) chicken broth, 4 baby carrots (julienned), 4 fresh asparagus spears (trimmed and cut into pieces), ½ celery rib (chopped), 1 green onion (chopped), a dash of pepper, a dash of garlic powder, ¾ cup cooked elbow macaroni, 1 can (5 ½ oz.) evaporated milk, and ¾ cup fresh baby spinach.
In a saucepan, combine the broth, asparagus, carrots, celery, onion, pepper, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cover. Simmer until the vegetables are tender, usually about 5 minutes. Stir in the macaroni, milk, and spinach. Heat thoroughly.
