Recipe For Spinach Soup

Stars and Spinach Soup

YumSugar member Tara Sharp shared this cold-weather recipe for spinach soup in the Kitchen Goddess cooking group.In this chilly January weather, nothing warms me up more than my favorite spinach soup recipe, located on the back of Ronzoni's acini di pepe box. I grew up with my mom making it, and now that I'm re-creating it, I like to tweak it each time depending on my mood and what I have on hand. One of my favorite switch-ups is to swap the tiny pasta balls for pastina, which is little stars. In the photo above, I used pastina and a larger egg pasta star; it's really up to you what kind you use. I also used less broth than usual. Remember, everything is adaptable, so have fun with it! See the recipe below.
