Italian Sausage Soup

A couple of weeks ago, we made a big pot of Italian Sausage Soup.  Cold weather and winter has a way of pushing us towards making warm, comfortable, tasty dinners that will last for a few days.  This soup was very, very good and really helped warm us up in the middle of an endless winter!  We have no pictures at all of this one, but it's definitely an appetizing looking soup with the array of colors and flavors.

Enjoy it as much as we did.  It's very easy to put together and makes enough for 3 or 4 meals easy.

1 lb sweet or hot italian sausage (we buy the sweet italian turkey sausages in the casing and remove the casing)
1 clove garlic, minced
28 oz reduced sodium beef broth
1 can italian stewed tomatoes
1 can Great Northern or cannelini beans, drained
2 small zucchini, cubed
2 cups frozen chopped spinach
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Brown sausage with garlic in dutch oven.  Stir in broth and tomatoes, season with salt and pepper.  Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes. 

Stir in beans and zucchini.  Cover and simmer another 15 minutes or until zucchini is tender.

Add spinach and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes.  Serve with garlic toast croutons or eat it right out of the pot, it's amazing either way!
