Ingredients for this soup
Most of the ingredients for this recipe are easy to find and you may have most at home already. Here are a couple of tips for the others:
- Italian Sausage: ground sausage will be the easiest to use for this recipe. If you cannot find it ground but only in links, simply remove the casings before cooking. Use whichever sausage is your favorite. We used pork sausage, however, chicken, turkey, beef or even a vegetarian substitute will work for this recipe.
- Pasta: we used rotini, but any shape will work! Use whatever you have available.
- Garlic: either fresh minced or the pre-minced will work!
How to make Italian Sausage and Pasta Soup
This soup is easy to make. The first step is to prepare your produce. Chop your carrots, onion, garlic, tomato and spinach. Then, in a large pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook until browned. Break it up as it cooks into smaller pieces.
Once the sausage is cooked, add the carrots, onion and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes. Add broth and seasoning, cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add pasta and tomato. Cook until pasta is al dente. Add spinach and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat, season as desired with salt and pepper and serve!

Tips for Storage
In case you happen to have any soup leftover, I recommend storing this soup in the refrigerator. The past and sausage will not freeze well. This soup is great as leftovers though so don’t worry if you have a few servings leftover.
