Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 14 ounces fully-cooked smoked sausage, sliced into 1/2" rounds
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 15 ounces petite diced tomatoes (fire-roasted diced tomatoes work very well too!)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (6 ounce) bag fresh baby spinach
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan, or to taste

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until nicely browned. Add garlic and cook for just another minute or two until garlic is fragrant. Add chicken broth, cannellini beans, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and let it simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes to allow broth to reduce a little.
  • Stir in fresh baby spinach and remove from heat. Continue to stir until spinach is wilted. Garnish with fresh ground black pepper and Parmesan. Ladle into bowls and serve with a hunk of crusty bread.

Notes

Can substitute any type of sausage you prefer - Andoullie sausage to add some heat - turkey or chicken sausage to reduce the fat and calories.
