Italian Sausage Soup

This soup is a favorite of mine and everyone who has tried it loves it! I came up with the idea for this soup while I was walking around the store wondering if I could make a simple soup with the spinach I had left over. I was able to buy some ingredients that sounded like they would work and I made this incredible soup. I wanted everyone to try it I was so proud of my creation! I’m excited to share this recipe with you and I hope you love it as much as I do.


Ingredients:

  • 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 pound of mild Italian sausage
  • 1 medium sweet onion (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 2 large stalks of celery (chopped)
  • 2 large carrots (chopped)
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can of cannellini beans (drained)
  • 1 tablespoon of oregano 
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of basil
  • ½ teaspoon of red pepper flakes (or more if you like spicy)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 oz of chicken broth

 

Sausage soup 2


Directions:

  1. In a pot on medium heat, pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil, then add Italian sausage. (If the sausage sticks, add about ⅓ cup of water)
  2. Chop up the sausage with a spatula as it cooks in the pot.
  3. Once the sausage is cooked, remove it from the pot and put in a separate bowl.
  4. Add the chopped onion, garlic, celery, and carrots. Add about  ½ cup of the chicken broth and cook veggies until they are soft.
  5. Add the spinach until it has cooked down, and then place the sausage back in and add the beans and canned tomatoes.
  6. Add the oregano, parsley, basil, and red pepper flakes.
  7. Add the rest of the chicken broth, then season with salt and pepper to taste (I add about a teaspoon of both) and let the soup simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Enjoy!
