I had 'heard' about Italian Wedding Soup for years, but had never tried it. Evidently it is a favourite of a lot of people and I had been missing out on something wonderful, so after hearing some friends talk about it again one evening, I came home and found a recipe. Of course I had all the ingredients I needed on hand (thank-you THRIVE LIFE), and it is always so easy to convert every recipe on the spot. Now I have joined the ranks of Italian Wedding Soup fans. I know what they're all talking about and regret all those lost years . . . oh well, I'm a convert now.

  1. Bring broth to boil and add pasta or rice if you're opting for gluten free.
  2. Cook 5 minutes (depends on the type of pasta you use so adjust if needed). You're looking to get the pasta about 1/2 cooked. Stir a few times to prevent sticking.
  3. Add onion, sausage, dehydrated peppers. Stir and cook for another minute or two.
  4. Turn heat off and add spinach and pesto. Stir again and cover.
  5. Let sit covered for another few minutes to finish the pasta / rice, while you're setting the table and calling the family.
  6. Holy Cow. SO Delicious, and ready in 15 minutes.
  7. You can be the hero mom, have a gourmet meal on the table 15 minutes after you walk thru the door, and everybody will love it. for a more hearty meal, make up some cornbread to serve with it.

When you have to put a meal on in a hurry, turn to THRIVE. Nutritious, Delicious, Quick and Easy. There was a time when those adjectives could never describe the same dish, but those were the days before THRIVE. I call that time 'BT'
