Before you turn up your nose to this not-so-appealing colored soup, you have to try it! My friend told me about this soup. At first I thought, "Ew!" but tonight decided to give it a try and am I glad I did!! Very tasty soup that's also very healthy for you!

- 1, 14.5 oz. can cut spears asparagus, drained
