Directions

  1. Remove skin from sausage and crumble into frying pan. Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. If you are trying to cut fat, remove meat from pan, place in a colander, and rinse under cold water.
  2. Place meat in a large pot; add stock and potatoes. Boil until potato is cooked.
  3. Add spinach. Continue boiling until spinach is lightly cooked.
  4. Remove soup from heat, stir in evaporated milk, and season to taste. Do not add any salt if using canned stock.

I made this in the crockpot and it turned out well. I took the suggestions of others; it tasted really good and my husband really liked it- and he is really picky about how food tastes. I cooked the turkey sausage and onions in a pan then put them in the crock pot; I added the following: garlic, cannellini beans, petite diced tomatoes, sweet turkey sausage (I would use spicy instead of sweet next time),fresh grated parmesan cheese which I added at the beginning of cooking and some when I served it. I think it would have tasted just as good without the half and half or evaporated milk. Also be sure to put the spinach in in the last half hour-I put mine in with the rest of the ingredients and the spinach was a little mushy.

This was okay. I pretty much followed the recipe and I felt like it was missing something. Next time, I WILL use spicy sausage and add white beans. I think it would also benefit from some fresh basil and parsley. It smelled wonderful, and I served it with a caesar salad and garlic rolls. Oh, by the way, since sausage links are sold mostly in packages of 5, just throw them all in and use 8 cups of broth instead of 6. It works.

This soup made a great meal. To make it lower in fat, I used turkey sausage and 98% fat free chicken broth. I also used frozen chopped spinach. Delicious!
