When feeling fatigued and in need of something quick and nourishing, this brothy, comforting dish is perfect. A soothing standby, this nutritious soup freezes beautifully and is great for those on either a neutropenic,... antimicrobial, low fiber, or bland diet. The spinach adds minerals and vitamins, and the noodles add calories. All in all, this is a perfect treatment comfort food.
Bring the broth to a boil. Break the pasta into the broth and cook until just tender. Break up the pasta with a kitchen knife if you want the noodles shorter.
Stir in the spinach, and cook for 2 more minutes. Serve with a little Parmesan cheese, if desired.
The taste of the stock or broth is important for simple soups like this. Whether buying pre-made or canned, try purchasing several brands of low sodium stock. And find the best tasting stock. Then, freeze the others to use in soups or dishes that have lots of strong flavors.
