In The Kitchen – Sausage and Spinach Soup

Revised from Bob Warden’s Great Food Fast (on QVC), I lightened it up. Absolutely delicious.  I use a digital pressure cooker, but you can also do this on the stove, it just takes longer.

2 Tbl Olive Oil

1 lb Italian Turkey sausage ( I use 1/2 sweet and 1/2 hot, and links not bulk)

1 red onion, chopped

4 – 6 cups chicken stock (I use turkey stock)

2 pkgs frozen spinach (I like a lot of spinach, use one if you don’t)

5 redskin potatoes  sliced

1 tble minced garlic

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp Italian Seasoning

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1 bay leaf

1 cup fat free half and half

salt and pepper to taste


Take casings off the sausage and cut up into bite size peices.

Heat pressure cooker on brown setting till sizzling and add olive oil

Add onions and garlic and sausage, saute in the hot cooker till onion is fragrant.

Add remaining ingredients except for the half and half, and cover and lock the cooker lid

Cook for 7 minutes and perform a quick release when done.

Add half and half.

Season to taste.


Serves 6.  9 points per serving
