substituted a couple of things and it still turned out great! I used baby greens, scallions, and added turkey sausage (the 98% FF kind) and frozen purple hull peas instead of beans. Will definitely make again!!!!
Chicken & Spinach Soup with Fresh Pesto
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
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.

I have made this soup several times... we love it! Makes great leftovers for the week too :)
I used 2 carrots chopped in a vita-mixer, used black eyed peas(it's what I had) did not chop spinach and did not take out chicken (I had cooked chicken and cut into pieces). I added 1 TBLE pesto sauce as well. It was the most delicious flavorful soup! Not to mention how easy and quick to put together. A KEEPER!!!
We love this soup. We make it 3 - 4 times a month! It's quick to make and delicious!
This soup was incredible- I added a 9 oz package of whole wheat cheese tortellini during the last 10 minutes or so, as well as a tsp or so of red chili flakes and a dash of tabasco which was just perfect.
I also diced the chicken while still uncooked and then left it in for the duration of cooking (didn't take it out as directed to make it easier) and it turned out great.
Very highly recommended.
