Easy Creamy Crab and Asparagus Soup

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Creamy soup with crab, potatoes, and asparagus. I made this on a whim one Sunday when crabmeat was on sale at the store. It comes together quickly and is very tasty! You could easily replace the asparagus with another vegetable with equally good results."
