Italian Spinach and Sausage Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

This is a very quick soup that makes a nice presentation at your dinner party or holiday meal. There are very few ingredients, yet it yields a very flavorful soup. It also makes a complete meal with some crusty bread and a salad. I am not a fan of fennel seed, so I have always omitted it, but the original recipe calls for it, so I won't impose my tastes on everyone!

Quite good, especially given how fast it is. I browned my sausage and must have had the leanest bulk Italian sausage in the state - no drippings. So I added a little olive oil to the pan and sauteed my onions - I prefer that to just simmering them. I did use some fennel seeds, but would use less next time I buy the chopped spinach, rather than the frozen blocks, and added that at the very end.
