    Add one cup of ham cubes for a very good bowl of soup on a cold day.

    I made this on the stovetop, and simmered it for about two hours. I used organic broth, no-salt added tomatoes, and about seven oz. of fresh spinach. Since we are a family of two, I played with the leftovers. The second night I added three oz. of cooked farfalle to the pot, plus I put a bit of chicken in each of our soup bowls. The third night, with only pasta in the soup, was the best. Next time I will add about four oz. of pre-cooked pasta to the soup the first night, and it will make four nice dinner-in-a-dish servings.

    I also would add meat to this soup, perhaps some sliced Italian sausage links, if I was serving it as a main course. I also added a tablespoon of salt to balance the flavors.
