At the end of a cold, tiring day, I wanted something quick and warm. I whipped up this filling soup in a flash.


  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4 baby carrots, julienned
  • 1/2 celery rib, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • Dash garlic powder
  • Dash pepper
  • 3/4 cup cooked elbow macaroni
  • 1 can (5-1/2 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup fresh baby spinach


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the first seven ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in the macaroni, milk and spinach; heat through.
