In a large soup pot, heat up the oil on med-hi heat. Cook sausage until no longer pink, about 8 mins.
Make the soup
While the sausage is cooking, prep the veggies. Dice up the onion and the celery.
Once the sausage is nice and brown, add in the onion, celery and garlic and saute until tender for 4 minutes.
Next, add in the chicken broth, tomatoes, orzo, and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine all the ingredients. Bring the soup to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Stir occasionally and cook until the pasta is al dente.
Stir in the spinach and cook for 2 minutes, or until completely wilted. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with some parsley and laddle into a bowl. Enjoy
