Spicy Sausage Potato Soup with Spinach

Spicy Sausage Potato Soup with Spinach is a quick soup to make that's loaded with flavor! It's one of our favorites to enjoy as the weather starts to cool down. 

Ingredients

  • 1 pounds spicy Itailan Sausge I get this already ground in a package like you buy ground beef, in the meat department
  • 3/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional If you can't find spicy sausage, you can up this to 1/2 teaspoon. If you bought spicy sausage, and don't want this soup to be super spicy, leave this out
  • 5 cups chicken broth, low sodium
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pound red potatoes, diced
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, cook the sausage over medium to high heat, crumbling the sausage as you go, until no longer pink. Stir in the onion and garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onion is translucent. 

  2. Season with basil, oregano, and crushed red pepper (see above). Pour in the broth and bay leaf. Bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook until they are fork tender. About 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. Stir in the spinach, and give it a quick stir. Stir in heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper, serve.
