Spinach and Pasta Soup



Introduction

The wonderful aroma of this soup is just the thing to come home to on a cold winter's day. Not only does it taste great (even spinach-haters have gobbled it up!), but it's quick and easy to make. It keeps for up to four days in the refrigerator. The wonderful aroma of this soup is just the thing to come home to on a cold winter's day.
