This is fabulous! I just made it for lunch bc I don't think dh would eat it with all the spinach in it! I didn't have orzo(well, I am not eating wheat so they don't make brown rice orzo) I crushed up some tinkyada brown rice fusilli in place of it. I also had to add more like 2c of water to the soup and I cooked my spinach first to be sure it was still good as it has been in the freezer so long I thought it may be freezer burnt but it wasnt! and I added 2 cubes of not-beef boullion. I also left out the smart balance and used 1tbs of olive oil only to sautee the onion and garlic. OH, and I didn't have capers and couldn't find my vinegar so I used old red wine that I use for cooking that is definitely vinegar by now! LOL

This is definitely a keeper! Next time I may only use 1 can of beans just to cut back my calories

YUM! 5 stars! Thanks Cottage!
