Reviews for One-Pot Spinach Beef Soup
"Very good soup! I used UNsalted broth so ended up adding about 1 tsp. of salt. I made 1/2 the recipe and was enough for two meals for my husband and me!"
"Very good recipe! I could not find the diced tomatoes at my local grocery store, so for the 1/2 recipe I made, I diced 2 stalks of celery, a small onion, and 1/4 of a green pepper and added them to the meat as it was browning. I also used the mini version of the bow-tie/farfalle pasta. I will definitely make this again! Half of the recipe made 5 soup bowls."
"Our family liked it."
"I made this exactly as written and it was a hit!! Everyone had seconds and agreed it should go in my "keeper" file. Easy to make and a wonderful soup to kick off the fall menus."
"This soup is very tasty and filling. The leftovers were very good too. Made this a second time using Italian sausage instead of the ground beef. We enjoyed it more with the sausage, it added just enough extra flavor."
