"I didn't have any turkey or spinach so used 8 oz. of chicken breast diced and sauteed and Brussels sprouts, chopped, and sliced carrots rather than shredded. I used powdered chicken bouillon instead of the broth. I think more veggies could be used, zucchini or yellow squash as well as the spinach. I used great northern beans instead of kidney or cannelloni beans.. This is a very forgiving recipe. You can used anything you have on hand. It was really delicious."

"The flavor of this soup is AMAZING. Usually soups are too bland for me. I pretty much followed the directions. I subbed two 14oz cans of petite diced tomatoes and I was a bit shy on turkey so I added about 1c of chicken. To save time I used my food processor and chopped 2c of baby carrots and then I ran my spinach through the food processor too. This made the spinach really small and my husband thought it was herbs. :-) Definitely a keeper and even better the next day."
