How To Make hearty green soup

  • 1
    In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, 1 cup of water, spinach, and ham. Bring to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, 5 minutes, stirring to separate spinach.
  • 2
    Stir in instant potato. Add peperoni. Simmer 2 minutes longer, or until slightly thickened. Nice served with fresh bread.
  • 3
    Sometimes I add a little extra ham and peperoni to make it meatier. Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top is good too.
