In reserved chicken broth , place the onion ,carrots and spinach. Now add thyme, salt and pepper, to taste, and red pepper flakes.I let the soup come to a boil and then I drop the temperature down to simmer for 6 hours. When you are ready to eat bring the soup back to a boil and add the pasta, boil for 15 minutes( I used the dried spinach and cheese small ravioli)or according to package directions.
