Chicken & Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (447 votes)

This fragrant, Italian-flavored soup takes advantage of quick-cooking ingredients—boneless, skinless chicken breast, bagged baby spinach and canned beans. It features a simple homemade basil pesto swirled in at the end to add a fresh herb flavor. If you are very pressed for time, you can substitute 3 to 4 tablespoons of a store-bought basil pesto.

My partner and I both thought this soup was good enough to be a repeat recipe. He is a chef and very picky. I substituted red kidney beans, added some mushrooms and used both carrots and red pepper. I also used olivieri store bought pesto instead of fresh. I have been craving it ever since I made it :)

The fresh pesto definitely made this soup come together. Next time, I might substitute escarole instead of spinach for a different flavor.

This simply delicious soup was quick and easy to prepare using pesto made from home grown basil. The soup tasted even better two days later. I substituted red kidney beans instead of the white kidney beans. The rainbow colors of all the ingredients made the soup visually appetizing too!
