    3 stalks of celery finely chopped
    1/2 large sweet onion, finely chopped

    1/4 tsp garlic, crushed
    1/8 tsp crushed red pepper, to taste
    2 dashes Italian seasoning

2. Add two cans of broth and heat until warm, then add the beans and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Then turn down the heat and add the chopped spinach and cook about three more minutes.

3. Serve in 1 cup servings, adding 2 TBSP grated Parmesan Cheese to each serving or to taste.
