Made just as posted, except I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and 2% milk. Delicious! I halved the recipe for just myself, and will have enough for another bowl. I will really enjoy this soup this fall and winter when there is a chill in the air. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!

Made with some potatoes as a dinner tonight. though I omitted the salt, and used 2 % milk , and low-fat butter. OMG>> nice , creamy, and full of flavors. I did take Jans tip, and chopped the mushrooms up a little. I only made recipe for 3, and wish I had made more, but since I have leftover ingredients, I have lunch tommorow too. Made for Almost 5..

Love this soup. Creamy but not too rich tasting and with plenty of fresh spinach and mushrooms. I doubled the mushrooms and they are great. Next time though, I'll chop my mushrooms a little smaller.
