James' Sausage and Spinach Soup

Print Friendly and PDF
This recipe is from James Yuasa of Renton, Washington, pictured here with his wife, Betty, vacationing on Maui. James recommends Trader Joe’s brand of sweet Italian sausage for this soup. This dish is perfect for those chilly nights in the Northwest. It is thick, hearty and a meal in itself. So good!

½ onion, chopped
2-3 links sweet Italian sausage (remove skin)
1 quart chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes (14.5 oz.)
½ cup Calrose rice (uncooked)
8 oz. frozen spinach (1/2 of a bag)
Parmesan cheese, grated

Saute the onion with the sausage for a few minutes until the sausage is browned. Add the chicken stock, tomatoes and rice. Bring to boil, then simmer for 20 minutes. Add the frozen spinach, and bring to boil again. Serve with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
