Italian Wedding Soup

I stumbled upon this recipe on pinterest and I knew I had to try it out.
I love wedding soup and Andrew hates spinach so I knew this would be the perfect dish to make him change his mind!

* 16 Italian Style Meatballs* 1 small onion, diced* 3 carrots, thinly sliced* 3 celery stalks, thinly sliced* 3 cloves garlic, minced* 1 pinch crushed red or green pepper* 5 cups chicken stock* 1 cup orzo* 10 oz baby spinach
* coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Heat 1 Tbs. oil in a small skillet and brown the chicken sausages on all sides, until heated through, 5 minutes total. Remove from heat.
In a deep pot, heat the remaining 2 Tbs. oil over medium-high. Add the onions, garlic, carrots and celery. Add the crushed pepper along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute until the veggies start to soften, 6 minutes.
Add the  stock. Bring to a light boil.
Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 6 minutes.
Add the chicken sausages and spinach. Simmer for about 5 more minutes. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and enjoy!
