- 4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth

- 3 cups baby spinach
- In a blender, blend 1 can of beans with 1 cup of water.
- Press Saute button then cook the bacon until crisp. Set aside on paper towels.
- Add the onion, carrots and celery to the pot and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste then add the pureed beans, beans, broth, rosemary and bay leaves.
