Minestrone Soup

I had some leftover zucchini and squash dish. What to do with it? Okay, I will turn this into soup.
I cut some sweet Italian sausage into very small slices, sautéed it in a little olive oil and added some more chopped onions, about 1/8 cup chopped orange peppers, and 5-6 minced garlic cloves. Added about a quart chicken broth, more seasonings—fennel seed, oregano, basil, marjoram, and Italian seasoning and about a cup of macaroni noodles—letting it simmer until the macaroni was almost soft, then put in some spinach. Check for salt and serve with lots of shredded asiago cheese.
My husband wants me to remember how I made this. I don’t really measure anything. Sort of go by feel and taste.
