2 tablespoons oil
3/4 cup chopped onion

2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen spinach
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 pound (4 cups) Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese (cut up)

Instructions

Place oil in large nonstick Dutch oven and saute onions over medium high heat for 3 minutes. Add water and bouillon cubes; heat to boiling, stirring until cubes are dissolved. Gradually add noodles so that bouillon mixture continues to boil and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and garlic powder. Cook 4 minutes more. Add pepper, milk and cheese. Cook until cheese melts, stirring constantly. Makes 4 quarts, or 6 to 8 bowls of soup.
