Leftover Tomato Sauce Equals Quick Minestrone Soup

My bowl of soup.

Made a quick minestrone soup last night, Jeff and I loved it.  We had part of a jar of spaghetti sauce left over from the shakshuka earlier in the week and no idea what to do with it, minute minestrone to the rescue.   I used some leftover Italian-sausage flavored ground turkey, carrot shreds, a can of garbanzos, a can of diced tomatoes, a handful of diced spinach, and that half a jar of spaghetti sauce.   I made pasta separately and let each person decide their own amounts.   Serve with grated Parmesan on top.  It made enough for dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day.
