This is a great meal-in-one pot type of soup. I use turkey Italian sausage to cut down on the fat content. We love the Parmesan cheese toasts on top...use a nice crusty bread for those.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large saucepot over high heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until brown, 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add spinach and broth. Fill one empty can of broth with water; add to pot. Cover and bring mixture to a boil. Add capellini, cover and boil 2 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Broil bread slices on cookie sheet about 1 minute per side, until toasted. Drizzle each slice with 1 teaspoons oil; sprinkle each with 1/2 teaspoons Parmesan cheese.
  3. Divide soup among 4 large soup bowls and top each serving with prepared toasts.

Excellent soup! This was very easy to make but packed with flavour. A definite make again recipe. I used lean hot italian sausage, decreased the amount of spinach and increased the amount of capellini. Teenagers loved it! I used a pre-shredded italian cheese mix instead of just parmesan, and next time I think I'll use even more cheese and broil for a couple of minutes to fully melt the cheese. Great recipe, Hey Jude!

This was very easy and very tasty; however, I can't give it all five stars, because I will change a couple of things next time. I'll use an entire pound of sausage (sweet Italian turkey) instead of just a half. Will also add more than a half cup of pasta. I eyeballed it until it looked right. I also sprinkled parmesan directly onto my bowl of soup after I had salted and peppered it. Really a yummy, quick meal!
