tablespoons olive oil
pound ground beef
pound hot Italian pork sausage, casing removed
large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
cloves garlic, minced
cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
cup chopped fresh basil leaves
cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano(14.5 ounces)
can (about 15 ounces) white cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
cup uncooked elbow macaroni
package (about 6 ounces) fresh baby spinach
cup grated romano cheese
Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the beef, sausage and onion and cook until the beef and sausage are well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat. Add the garlic and cook and stir for 30 seconds.
Stir the broth, basil, tomatoes and beans in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the elbows and cook until they're tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the spinach and cook until it's wilted. Remove the saucepot from the heat and stir in the cheese. Serve with additional cheese, if desired.
