      I have never rated a recipe one star. I followed the recipe to the "t". I used store bought pesto so maybe this made a difference. IMO, I think there is too much spinach. I would add the spinach at your discretion. It was very bland, no flavor. Sorry mersaydees!

      Yes, this is a must if you are a pesto-lover! This goes together surprisingly quickly. The flavors go together perfectly; I used 1T pesto and it was very prominent throughout. I did add another cup and a half of water to spread it a little bit further. Didn't use any cheese. Would definitely make again!

      This soup is so delicious. And healthy at the same time. I used low fat, reduced sodium chicken broth. I used 4 cups of fresh spinach. And only 1 tbs of pesto. This was so easy to do. Thanks Mersaydees. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
