White Bean and Spinach Soup

Wow, it is taking me just about foreeeevvvveeerrrr to get through this 12 Days of Soup series I created, umm, last October.

I guess I haven't been eating as much soup as I intended to eat this winter.....

Anyways, here is my latest creation - it is healthy, hearty, and super tasty.  Top it with a little fresh parmesan and - YUM!

White Bean and Spinach Soup {makes about 5 servings}
-1 can of cannellini beans {aka white kidney beans}
-1 bag of baby spinach leaves
-1 medium onion, diced
-3 cloves of garlic, minced
-3 pieces of pancetta or bacon, diced
-4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
-olive oil, salt and pepper

1. In a large pot, saute the pancetta or bacon in a tiny bit of olive oil.  As it gets crispy, add the onion and continue to saute until soft.  Last add the garlic and the spinach.  The spinach will seem like a lot at first, but it will quickly cook down.

2. Once spinach has cooked down, add the broth and bring the soup to a boil.  Reduce heat, mix in the beans, and simmer for about 7 minutes.

That's it - Enjoy!
