Chicken & Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (394 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.

This was the best soup I've ever had! I followed the recipe exactly, except I used red, yellow, and orange peppers for color and carrots. Gotta make more next time though. No leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Freakin Awesome Soup!

Refreshing and Springy

I've made a new soup each week this winter. Some have been pretty great but this was my favorite. It was so refreshing and bright. Sadly, it was all eaten so there were no left overs. Next time I will double it. So good!

Easy to make, great taste, fun color.

OUTSTANDING!

I've made this recipe several times and shared it with friends and coworkers. Everybody loves it! It is surprisingly hearty and filling. I usually tinker with recipes, but not with this one except to use both carrots and peppers (and once yellow squash, which also worked well). I give it my highest rating.

Fast, easy, flavorful, hearty
