My little one doesn’t like spinach, so I make hers without. Perfect served with a crusty bread or garlic bread on the side.

More of my favorite pasta soup dinner recipes I enjoy when the weather starts getting colder are Chicken Soup with Spinach and Whole Wheat Acini Di Pepe, Chicken and Cavatelli Soup, and Asian Beef Zoodle Soup.
