Asparagus Soup

I like asparagus, but my husband isn't a major fan because of the texture. So this vegetable is more often consumed at our home in a pureed form. This is a thicker soup and is similar in many ways to the Tuscan Tomato Soup. One thing I love about pureed soups is the amount of vegetables you so easily consume!
Carmelize in medium soup pan for 7 min:
2 TBS olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
Add and bring to boil:
2 c. chicken or vegetable broth
1 bunch fresh asparagus (chopped into 1" pieces)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
-Boil five minutes. Then blend until nice and smooth.
-Pour soup back into pan and add:
1/4 c. basil pesto
1/2 c. cream (or milk)
salt/pepper to taste
-Garnish with parmesan cheese and fresh parsley or basil
