Spinach Cheese Soup

A friend brought a pot of this steaming soup to our home after our first child was born. Three kids later, I'm still getting requests to make it frequently.

    Great tasting soup. It's a meal all by itself because it's quite filling. I will sprinkle the cheese, already mixed, on top of individual servings next time. The cheese clumps so quickly.
