    This was perfect to use up the fresh spinach I had on hand. I was reluctant about the amount of garlic, but went for it with no regrets. Served with shaved parmesan and crutons. I also did not thicken with the flour since it was perfect without.

    Really good as is. I tried it before I tweaked it and would give that 5 stars as well. I wanted to see how it would be with 2 tablespoons of cream cheese and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Love it!!

    Found a Costco sized bag of spinach my husband had bought that was about to turn hidden away in the outside fridge, this was a great recipe to use a chunk of it up. Realized I didn't have all the ingredients on hand but proceeded anyway. My changes were that I used only 1 T of butter and a couple T of evoo. Didn't have carrots but subbed in a little container of fresh mixed veggies (broccoli and pea pods) my husband had also squirreled away. This was surprisingly flavorful, I could easily see this being served at a fancy restaurant! I am feeling very healthy eating this, thank you for posting it!

    This was pretty good. I think I used more spinach than it called for. I did use 1/2 c. butter since I didn't have any half-and-half (I used 1 cup evaporated milk in place of the milk and half-and-half). Only other addition was about 1/8 c. parmesan.

    Comment: I had a big bag of garlic on hand so I decided to use this recipe to get rid of some of it. Well, I know the difference between a clove and a bulb of garlic...So why did I use 8 bulbs of garlic instead of 8 cloves? Even so it's edible, I wouldn't serve it to anyone else, but even with so much garlic I'm enjoying this soup. I'm laughing at myself for this error!
