Roasted Asparagus Chowder

The asparagus in the garden has just been beautiful this year because we have had so much rain. I just can't resist gathering that fresh asparagus and bringing it into the kitchen to create a delicious dish for my family. It is a chilly misty day and I decided to make a warm comforting chowder with the fresh asparagus. This recipe is so easy to put together and is wonderful we will be having this Roasted Asparagus Chowder is a great Garden to Table Recipe!
