A great recipe shared by a friend of mine. We use hot italian sausage for some kick, but mild italian sausage can be used as well.

Directions

Sausage Meatballs

1 Pound Spring House Farm Hot Italian Sausage, Loose (Can also use mild italian)

1/2 Cup Dried Bread Crumbs

1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

1/4 cup Milk (South Mountain Milk rules!)

1 Egg

1/2 tsp dried basil (or 1 1/2 tsp fresh)

1/2 tsp Fresh Cracked Pepper

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

Soup

4 cups Chicken Stock/Broth

1 TB Tomato Paste

1 Clove Garlic, Minced

1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

1/2 cup Mini Pasta Shapes of Your Choosing (We use Ditalini)

1 Bag/10 oz baby spinach leaves, or coarsely chopped regular spinach.

Grated Parmesan Cheese

Salt to Taste

Combine all meatball ingredients.  Form into marble-sized balls.  Combine broth, tomato paste, garlic and red pepper flakes in a slow cooker.  Add meatballs.  Cover, and cook on low 5-6 hours.

20 minutes before serving, add pasta.  When pasta is tender, stir in spinach leaves. 

Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
