This is another recipe that has everything going for it.  A one pot recipe, it’s easy to make and the cleanup is a snap.  It’s filling, utterly delicious, healthy and economical.

It provides enough nutrients that it can be a meal in itself, or it can be serve as a side dish.

What more can you ask of a recipe?

Some notes: Water can be substituted for the vegetable broth.  You can use either fresh or frozen spinach, though I prefer fresh.
