Alfredo Soup

by Kelly (TN, USA)
My mother-in-law made this delicious spinach soup when I first joined the family. I had to ask for the recipe and it turned out to be so simple. Both of my children (1 very adventurous eater and 1 very picky eater) just love it.
  • 1 small box of chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup of broth (fresh, from bouillon or canned)
  • 1 jar of alfredo sauce or homemade (we use Ragu regular or roasted garlic)
1. Put broth in medium saucepan over medium-low heat.
2. Empty thawed spinach into clean dish towel & squeeze the liquid out.
3. Add spinach to broth and simmer until warmed through (about 5-6 minutes).
4. Add alfredo sauce and heat until soup is warm.

This makes just enough for the 4 of us (2 adults & 2 children). We serve it in bread bowls or with homemade rolls. Enjoy!
