This is one of my “aak! It’s 5:30! What am I going to make for dinner!?!” recipes.
FAST and EASY! And because I chop onions in bulk with my Chop Wizard and then freeze them in zip lock bags, it doesn’t require any fresh ingredients. (Feel free to use fresh ingredients if you want.) I’ve included a print friendly version in pdf at the end of the post.
vegetable cooking spray
1 medium onion, chopped (about ½ cup)
3 cloves garlic, minced (I use minced garlic sold in a jar)
1 tsp italian seasoning, crushed
1 can (campbell’s) cream of celery soup
1/8 tsp pepper
1 package frozen chopped spinach (about 10 oz)
1 cup plain yogurt
1 medium tomato (or one can diced tomatoes, drained)
1 box of hot cooked spaghetti (about 4 cups cooked or 8 oz dry)
spray medium saucepan with cooking spray and heat over medium heat 1 minute.
Add onion, garlic and italian seasoning and cook until tender, stirring often.
add soup, pepper and spinach. Heat to a boil. reduce heat to low. cover and cook 10 minutes or until spinach is tender, breaking apart spinach with fork and stirring occasionally.
add yogurt and tomato and heat through.
toss with spaghetti.
sprinkle with cheese.
If desired, garnish with fresh basil.

This sounds really interesting. And you don’t have to thaw and drain the spinach first, huh?
Linda – No! I just cut the end off a box of frozen, chopped spinach and plop the square in the pan. Then as it cooks, I turn the spinach over every few minutes. You can scrape the square to stir in the thawed spinach, but you really don’t need to – it kind of “melts” off on its own.
That sounds really good, Julie! I love recipes that use spinach, because I sometimes have a hard time knowing how to get it into my family!
Thanks so much for joining the carnival!
I love spinach & tomatoes together in hot dishes! 🙂 What a great idea to add yogurt, too!
Although, I’m sorry, I really will never buy “cream of…” canned soups. They are full of chemicals (usually MSG, for one)! 🙂 I usually just mix up a quick roux (flour & butter), and make up the sauce from there. It’s still simple & quick, though! 🙂 (A dash of celery seed or some minced celery would add some of the same flavor as the soup.)
Thanks for sharing your recipe!
