Italian Sausage Soup

I can not take credit for this recipe. This soup is another one I found on the Weight Watchers Recipe Review Board. NCBEACHES is an amazing contributor to that Board and this is one of her contributions. She also has a great Facebook page that you really should see. She and many other friends post and share some really great recipes there. It is called Online Friends Sharing Recipes.

This Italian Sausage Soup is an amazing, easy, flavorful soup. In fact I always double the recipe. It is that good. My sister cooked this pot while I finished up some work at home. Thanks sis!

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.
