This was very tasty. So easy to make. I paired it with grilled cheese sandwiches. My entire family liked it, even the ones not so keen on spinach. I will be making this again.

Amazing easy soup, I added mushrooms to mine. I think next time I will use fresh onion and garlic

Delicious! So easy to make, and so satisfying. Based on other reviews, I cut back on the flour by 1 tsp. I didn't have chicken broth, so I used a chicken boullion cube and 1 cup of water. I will be making this many times. Sharp cheddar makes all the difference, too.

This was really tasty! I used what I had on hand, so instead of using fresh spinach, I just stirred in frozen spinach (thawed, drained, and squeezed dry) at the end until it was heated through. I also added in a chopped carrot (boiled in chicken stock) and about 2 TBSP chopped red bell pepper that I was trying to get rid of (sauteed in butter), for an extra veggie boost. It was delicious! The extra veggies and stock from boiling the carrot increased the volume enough for myself and my hungry husband to have two bigger portions.

I absolutely loved this recipe. I was really impressed with the simplicity of it also. I added garlic powder and about 1/2 cup more chicken broth. If it had longer to cook I think minced onion and garlic would be a great addition. It is wonderful as is however!

So good! I doubled it and used real milk and garlic (and since I couldn't find a chicken bouillon cube, I used a beef one). FANTASTIC! And so so so easy!

I usually double this recipe to make sure that my husband and I both get a decent helping of it in our bowls.

I have made this recipe several times, and I love it as a light meal. Usually I halve the quantity of spinach, and add an additional 1/2 c. of cheese (I use Kraft Triple Cheddar blend) and 1/4 t. garlic powder. It is very quick, easy, and yummy!

I've made this three times now, but I substitue the same amount of broccoli for the spinach. This is super-thick, but would taste just as good with half the cheese if you like a looser consistancy.
