    This soup is so good! I made a big batch of it for myself when I started my diet, but only had one bowl because my son and his girlfriend ate it all up - they loved it! They are both very slender and were surprised it was a DIET soup. So whether dieting or not, this is a tasty meal! - 4/10/10

  • Substitue a 15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes for the diced. It infuses the entire pot of soup with a richer tomato flavor which, combined with the spinach & spices, gives the soup a Florentine flavor. Doesn't significantly change the caloric or fat content, but does increase the sodium a bit. - 1/12/14
