I clipped this from the Star-Telegram several years ago. I always love making this in the fall/winter for a weekday dinner and use the leftovers for lunch. Serve with salad and crackers or nice bread. The smell of the herbs is awesome!! Note: You can buy Herbes de Provence in the spice section, but you may also use 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves and 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed, to substitute.

This was very good, and so easy to make. It only takes a few minutes to make, but the flavor tastes like its been simmering for hours. I used chopped ham instead of ground beef, and frozen chopped spinach.

Excellent and a very easy soup to make. I have tried several modifications in the past but the easiest one is to bump up the herbes de provence to 1 teaspoon because the flavor then speaks out. I prefer to simmer the soup up to 15-20 minutes to get flavors embedded but if you are in a hurry, the 5 minute simmer would be minimum.
