Easiest Soup Ever!

Since it's begun to get chilly around here, I was eager this week to try a new soup recipe. I found this on cooking light and make it last night. It has two things I love about cooking- really easy and it tastes amazing! That's a rare find.

Italian Sausage Soup

8 ounces hot or sweet turkey Italian sausage (I used sweet chicken sausage)
2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
1/2 cup uncooked small shell pasta
2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves
2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan or Romano cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage to pan, and cook about 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain; return to pan.

Add broth, tomatoes, and pasta to pan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until pasta is done. Remove from heat; stir in spinach until wilted. Sprinkle each serving with cheese and basil.

Serves 4

** It's not all that soupy so I might add another half can of chicken broth next time.
