Potato Soup

Boil with water just to cover:
2 potatoes per person plus one for the pot. Peel and cut into cubes
1 small onion cut up fine
Leaves from celery - about 2 Tablespoons minced
Salt to taste

Cook in microwave:
About 1/2 to 1 cup frozen chopped spinach - Drain well

After potatoes are soft, drain off any water left and mash with 2 Tablespoons butter and about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of milk. More if you want a thinner soup.

Return to heat and add spinach and 3 sticks of mozzarella sliced thin (or you could use grated mozzarella) and heat to serving temperature.

Salt and pepper to taste. A little bit of fresh grated nutmeg can also be used to season.
