This was a great soup! I did make a several changes due to what was on hand & made it vegetarian by using vegetable soup base. It went together quickly. I sauteed the onions, celery & carrots for a bit. Everyone really liked it. This will probably be better tomorrow, but my son has the leftovers at his house. Served with some great French bread.Omitted the potatoes (will try that another time), used one can of diced Italian flavored tomatoes, only about 1 cup of spinach as that is all I had, and used about 3/4 c. of pasta (instead of the potatoes), one can of cut green beans, and dark red kidney beans instead of the white beans.
