This is a great soup for the dreary cold days!I use turkey sausage as it’s a lot better for us! Low sodium broth too now folks!


  •                     1 pound Italian turkey sausage
  •                     1 clove garlic, minced
  •                     tetra of low sodium chicken broth
  •                     1 (14.5 ounce) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes
  •                     1 cup sliced carrots
  •                     1 (14.5 ounce) can great Northern beans, undrained
  •                     2 small zucchini, cubed
  •                     2 cups spinach – packed, rinsed and torn
  •                     1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •                     1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a stockpot or Dutch oven, brown sausage with garlic.  Stir in  broth, tomatoes and carrots, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.
  2.    Stir in beans with liquid and zucchini. Cover, and simmer another 15 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.
  3.  Remove from heat, and add spinach.  Replace lid allowing the heat from the soup to cook the spinach leaves.  Soup is ready to serve after 5 minutes.
