Is there something I can use instead of spinach? How much is 10 oz. fresh spinach, like in cups?

Hi there! IF you want to use fresh spinach 4 to 5 cups is about 10 oz, but you don't have to replace the spinach with anything. You can just leave it out and add more veggies! Enjoy!

If u put the macaroni in last,uncooked. Won't it make the broth (soup mixture) starchy tasting? Thx.

Hi there! No, adding the macaroni in last won't make the soup mixture starchy. Just be sure not to overcook it. Hope this was helpful. :)

Can I substitute fresh spinach for frozen? I can't stand the texture of frozen.

Hi there! Yes, you can substitute fresh spinach in this recipe. The Test Kitchen recommends adding it in the last five minutes of cooking to ensure that it's not overdone. Enjoy!

Let's call this what it is - Pasta Fagioli. This is a fantastic recipe! For once, I didn't add a thing. It was hearty and satisfying. Thank you for a great recipe!!

This soup is delicious! It makes a great lunch that you can bring to work or serve for dinner at home. It's not too heavy and the vegetables beans are amazing!
