pound sweet Italian pork sausage, casing removed
teaspoon dried oregano leaves, crushed
medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
medium carrot, peeled and sliced (about 1/2 cup)
cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Certified Organic Chicken Broth or Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth
cups coarsely chopped fresh spinach
cup cooked ditalini pasta (from 2 ounces/1/2 cup dry)
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
Heat a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the sausage and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Add the oregano, onion and carrot to the saucepan. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the broth and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through. Stir in the spinach and ditalini and cook for 1 minute or until the spinach is wilted. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the cheese, if desired.
