Turkey Minestrone Soup

Here's another great recipe passed on from my mom. She's a great cook, always trying new things and passing on the good ones to me :) Perfect for a chilly day... enjoy!

1 lb. ground turkey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery, chopped
8 cups chicken broth
1 can diced tomatoes or 1 cup fresh chopped
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 cup orzo
1 can white beans
2 handfuls fresh spinach
s & p
** optional: handful of parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top

Take out your large stock pot for making soup, add a drizzle of oil, your garlic, onion, carrots, celery and ground turkey and let it saute until your meat looses its pink color. Next add your seasoning, then your chicken broth, canned or fresh tomatoes, beans and orzo and let it cook for another 8 minutes. Lastly, add your spinach and let it simmer for about another 5 minutes or so then serve!
