“This is absolutely heaven. I made it without the sausage, and it was delicious. This is a definite make-again recipe. Recipe courtesy of Spilling the Beans.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan set over medium heat, heat a drizzle of oil and saute the sausage, breaking it up with a spoon, until it's no longer pink.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until soft.
  3. Add the water, pasta, tomato sauce, stock, oregano, and salt and pepper.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the pasta is tender.
  5. Add the spinach and beans and cook the soup for another 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. If it seems too thick, thin it with a little extra stock, tomato juice, or water.
  7. Ladle into bowls and top each serving with Parmesan while it's still hot.
