Biaggi's Chicken Florentine Soup

Chicken Florentine Soup (Similar to Biaggi's)
1/2 cup of chopped onion
chopped garlic (to taste)
olive oil and 1 to 2 tbsp butter
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen spinach, defrosted and water squeezed out
pinch or two of ground nutmeg
2 cups or so chicken broth
3/4 cup half and half (or non-fat milk)
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken (I used rotisserie)
flour mixed in a little water (optional, for thickening)
1/2 cup grated Romano cheese (plus more for serving)
croutons (for serving)

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil and butter.

Add drained spinach and good pinch or two of nutmeg. Add chicken broth, half and half, cooked chicken. Place on low heat. Add a little flour mixed with a small amount of water and cook, while stirring, until thickened. Stir in 1/2 cup of Romano cheese. Salt and pepper well (spinach can stand a bit of salt)

I threw a few croutons on top and more cheese. All in all, it was consistent.
