Easy Italian wedding soup

Preparation time: 7 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

3 cans (14 ounces each) fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
1 package (12 ounces) prepared and cooked turkey meatballs
2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) Acini Di Pepe pasta or pastina
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 pound fresh spinach (about 6 cups), washed and drained
4 dashes hot sauce (to taste)

In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil over medium-high heat. Add meatballs, pasta, garlic powder, olive oil, oregano, and black pepper and bring to a boil. While waiting for the boil, finely chop the spinach, reducing volume to about 2 cups when chopped. Add spinach and hot sauce to saucepan, and lower heat immediately; stir to combine. Simmer about 8–10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
