Yesterday was a nice chilly fall day so I decided to make a nice hearty soup. This was a new recipe of course I changed it a bit to fit what I had on hand.
Hearty Sausage and Spinach Soup; adapted from Jackie's Sausage Soup
Because this sausage has plenty of added spice I opted to leave out the extra spice called for in the recipe including the onions and peppers.
After browning I opted to leave the sausage grease in the pan instead of draining.
Next I added 2 cups of homemade chicken stock as well as 2 cans of Fire Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic, Basil and Oregano.
Next came a box of Green Giant Chopped Spinach that I had thawed and drained.
At this point I added a few cups of water to bring the liquid up much higher in the pot.
I turned the temperature to low and simmered for about 3 hours.
Everyone enjoyed it, you honestly could not even taste the spinach flavor. It was very hearty and it fed us for dinner with enough leftover for a couple lunches.
You can check out the original recipe here. I am sure it would be delicious as is. Plus if you check out the reviews there are several other adapatations to this recipe.
