  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion and garlic. Saute until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Add sausage; cook and stir until sausage is browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add potatoes; cook and stir until slightly browned, about 3 minutes.
  2. Mix chicken broth, 1/2 cup water, and soup base into potato mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer soup for 15 minutes.
  3. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan; add 3 cups spinach and cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain and reserve 1/2 water from the saucepan.
  4. Combine 3 cups spinach, reserved 1/2 cup spinach water, basil, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, and pine nuts in a food processor; blend until pesto is smooth.
  5. Stir milk and black pepper into soup; cook over low heat until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked spinach and stir. Ladle soup into bowls and top each with 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and a spoonful pesto.

Loved this tasty dish. I left out the parmesan at the end, but the dollop of pesto had lost of parm flavor in it anyway. My teenager said she could eat it every day. Winner!

As one of the creators of this recipe, it really is 5 star!!! From start to finish, it's done in 45 minutes -- perfectly filling, and a healthy/super-tasty dinner during the school week. Quick/...
