Here's a great recipe I clipped from a magzine years ago and have forgotten about. Can't wait to make it again when the weather is cooler!

I made a variation of this with dried white beans, whole wheat pasta, fresh Kale and an herbed chicken sausage. It was a wonderful meal that I had for lunch for days. The only thing I would recommend is to keep the pasta separate from the soup unless it will all be consumed within the first day -- otherwise the pasta gets way too overcooked.

fantastically fast and easy. I used frozen spinach and substituted whole wheat (Barilla Omega-3) macaroni for a little added health boost. I also cut the Kielbasa into half rounds instead of rounds so that they would fit on the spoon easier. The only thing I may change is reducing the amount Kielbasa since as written, it's a very rich soup.
