Another great thing about this soup is that you can fix it in a large skillet or even a medium-sized soup pot on the stove top.

This recipe uses 8 ounces of fresh spinach which looks a bit overwhelming when you add it to the skillet but do not worry. Once it cooks down, the spinach will wilt and be the perfect amount. If you aren’t a big fan of the stems on the spinach leaves, you can cut them off before adding.
