  4. Once the pasta is cooked, add it to the other pot of ingredients. Then, add 1/2 cup of spinach to the pot and stir.
  5. Finally, serve your bowl of soup and garnish with avocado and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Cooking Tip: Wrapping a paper towel around spinach before placing in a container will keep it fresh!
