This is a really easy Tuscan style white bean and spinach soup. I prefer it meatless, but mini meatballs can be added.

Very nice. I used my homemade turkey stock in place of chicken stock. Added some mushrooms for extra goodness. Otherwise made as written and mopped it up with some crusty bread. Thanks for a lovely dinner.
