I know what it’s like, dance classes, music lessons, football or baseball practice. The summer play that takes 5 months of practice or rehearsals. Having a collection of recipes that are easy, use basic ingredients, and your family loves, makes those busy times so much better. This soup recipes is one of them. I used dreamfields pasta in the soup. You can leave it out, use a different pasta, or precook the pasta and add a little to each bowl. That is up to you. and your family’s preferences.

Let’s talk hidden veggies.

I have talked before about trying to get my sons to eat cauliflower. I have perfected cauliflower rice where my whole family will eat it. I can hide it in a few recipes, including this soup recipe. I add a package of frozen cauliflower and let it cook with the soup. When the soup is cooked through, I remove the cauliflower and add it to a blender with some of the broth. No one knew that there was cauliflower in the soup.

This soup recipe has spinach in it as well. I am not a fan of cooked spinach but I can add it to a few things and still think it tastes good.

This chicken alfredo soup is one of them. Baby spinach is ideal but if you have regular spinach, just remove the stems and tear into smaller pieces. I only added one can of Italian tomatoes. You can add two if you will like to increase the veggies in the soup.. However you make this, it is delicious. This might end up in your fall/winter rotation.

    How much cauliflower should be used in this? I don’t see it listed in the ingredients.

      I used 12 oz (I believe that’s the right amount, it’s the blue package of the Walmrt brand).
