    I totally dig this! This was a breeze to make & very tasty as well (this is my kind of soup, I just love spinich). I topped it off with some fresh grated parmesan cheese & real bacon bits. A delicious light lunch. Thanks Corwynn!  -  30 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was a good recipe, however it does not make very much and it needs to be doubled if you want leftovers or are serving more than 2-3 people.  -  15 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great recipe. I made it for my girlfriend on Valintines Day and she loved it. The only thing I changed was the second time I made it with more basil and more spinach. I think it worked a little better. Thanks!  -  19 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
