I love this soup - make it all the time since I discovered it. I usually double the recipe and it holds fine for a few days of leftovers. Barely lift a finger to make it - I call it lazy woman's soup.

This was a great tasting soup that was so easy to make! I needed to use up the rest of the spinach and found this recipe. Definitely add the parmesan cheese. I also used 2 cans of beans and added red pepper flakes. But it's still good without the cheese as I'm eating the leftovers right now for lunch. Keeper file for sure!

This went well with some panini sandwiches. I suggest using a high quality chicken stock. This is a great "throw-it-together-very-quick" soup. Thanks for a keeper.

This soup is amazing, for something so simple and quick it is delicious! I used fresh garlic instead of the roasted and sprinkled some freshly grated parmesean cheese on top. Thank you Ms. Bold.

Made this for lunch today, so quick and easy. I didn't have cannellini beans so I used butter beans and the juice of some salsa I had made (it was hot and spicy). This is wonderful soup, loved the flavor and the fact that it can be made is such a short time. This one is a keeper for me. Thanks for posting ms bold. Update: 01-08 Can't tell you how many times I have fixed this soup, it is so good and good for you! I've made with both fresh and frozen spinach and either way it is wonderful. I must confess this recipe makes only 2 servings for me, it's just that good. It's also good with some louisiana hot sauce dashed on instead of the red pepper flakes. This is a REAL winner with me ms bold.

I was going to post this recipe and then looked, and here it is :) My mom used to make this for my dad all the time and now I make it for him and DH loves it too. Only thing I do different is I saute some sweet onions first in the pot with a little oil and garlic then add the broth and beans. We don't add the V8 either but I tried it this way yesterday and really like the addition. Also several dashes of Italian seasoning is very good in this. Thanks for posting this.

We love soup and we love spinach, so it came as no surprise that this quick and easy soup was a winner at our house. Made this using baby spinach fresh from the garden ... I was very generous with the spinach! Found the red pepper flakes very complimentary to the soup. Thank you for sharing this recipe which I have been making and enjoying both for lunch and for a light evening meal.

I made this for a quick lunch today, and I really enjoyed it. I added an extra can of beans, and am pretty sure I added extra spinach (I didn't measure it):). I used a large clove of minced fresh garlic, rather than roasted, so I added it when I added the spinach. This is a very nice, quick dish, but I especially love the fact that it is also good for you. Thanks for posting it!

Two of us went for seconds and polished off this classic and healthy (ok healthful, but I always make this mistake) soup recipe in one night and in even less time than it took to prepare. It was perfect as is, but you could also serve it with a little vinegar (or lime/lemon juice) and some parmesan cheese on the side. Even for people not on a diet, this is a real quick and easy vegetable side dish as it's low-calorie and packed with vitamin A. Thanks Ms. Bold!

This is a winner and will become a regular in our home! Danny, my SO, was still talking about it the next day. Quick, easy and only few ingredents. Very filling but we ate it all even though I made a double batch. I accidently put too much red pepper flakes in and it was a bit too hot for me, added some butter, and that toned it down. I love basil, so I added a bit of it also as well as extra spinach.
