Soup Week: Marcella Hazan's Spinach Soup

This is a really simple recipe for spinach soup, and it was a big hit with my Sunday linner crowd.  I used the recipe in the book "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking," which is one of my standbys.  I linked to the most accurate online version of the recipe that I could find.  The online recipe states low-fat milk but I used whole.  I also used a stick blender to puree the soup.  I served with Jack Bishop's tomato-mozarella tart in a basil-garlic crust.  Nice light Sunday dinner.

Soup week has come at the perfect time for me--no more than two months after the last time I had my oven repaired, it has broken again!  Luckily the gas range is still going strong.

I hope the next time you repair your oven it is fixed for good. Posted: 7:25 am on February 28th
