Italian Sausage and Spinach Soup Recipe

Italian Sausage and Spinach Soup

The weather is cooling down, and the kitchen is heating up. The one thing that my kids LOVE on a rainy day is a bowl of warm homemade soup. I am always trying new things in the kitchen, and when I found myself with a couple of extra cans of crushed tomatoes from the holidays, I made this Italian sausage and spinach soup. The result was pure deliciousness. It ended up being one of the best soups that I have made, and the kids ate every last bite. A successful homemade meal is one where there are no leftovers.
