    I agree that maybe there is a typo regarding the spinach. It tasted great before I added the spinach. I think a full package is even too much - maybe 1/2 package. I'd try it again w/o all the spinach.

    Way too much spinach, I think it must have been a typo error. I spent an hour trying to salvage the soup adding more broth, water and any vegetables I could find in my fridge freezer and cupboard. What a disaster. I will make it again but with only 1 package of spinach. Also if you have a submersion blender you can puree part of it right in the pan.
