Cut sausage crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices, then cut slices in half crosswise.
In a 5 to 6-quart pan over medium-high heat, combine sliced sausage with onion and olive oil.
Stir often until onion is softened and mixture is lightly browned, 5-6 minutes.
Add broth and macaroni to pan.
Bring to a boil over high heat; then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until macaroni is tender to bite, about 10 minutes.
Add beans and pesto sauce to pan.
Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until beans are heated through, 2-3 minutes. Stir in spinach.
Cook just until spinach wilts but is still bright green, about 1 minute.
