Spinach Tomato Orzo Soup by Angie McGowan at the Family Kitchen

This recipe seems so simple upon first glance, but it’s a little bit crazy. Though I appreciate the intent may have been to use whole boxes, bags & cans of ingredients so you don’t have anything left to shove back into your pantry (I love that!) BUT you will get more soup than you know what to do with so unless you are feeding a family of 10 it might get wasted at the end. It was delicious the first time, hot off the stove and I love a recipe not afraid of adding spinach. But leftovers aren’t soup. They are soggy pasta at best. (The orzo absorbs all of the liquid). Fine, maybe, for a lunch at the office, maybe once, but that’s it. I would need to find a way to make about 1/3 of this recipe if I were to make it again. If you are feeding a crowd on a cold winter day, then go check out the recipe over at The Family Kitchen.
