    1. Remove the skin from the sausages and crumble into frying pan. Add chopped onion and cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. If you are trying to cut fat, remove meat from pan, place in a sieve and rinse under cold water.
    2. Place meat in a large saucepan; add stock and potatoes. Boil until potato is cooked.
    3. Add spinach. Continue boiling until spinach is lightly cooked.
    4. Remove soup from heat, stir in evaporated milk and season to taste.

    Added a cup of pasta along with the stock, really glad I added the pasta it just gave it that little extra texture. When I first tasted this soup, was not much for it at all, needed lots of seasoning to give it some taste. With the addition of lots of pepper it was perfect. Next time I think I will add some bacon. Also used hot and spicy sausage.  -  12 Jan 2013


    I made this in the crockpot and it turned out well. I took the suggestions of others; it tasted really good and my husband really liked it- and he is really picky about how food tastes. I cooked the turkey sausage and onions in a pan then put them in the crock pot; I added the following: garlic, cannellini beans, petite diced tomatoes, sweet turkey sausage (I would use spicy instead of sweet next time),fresh grated parmesan cheese which I added at the beginning of cooking and some when I served it. I think it would have tasted just as good without the half and half or evaporated milk. Also be sure to put the spinach in in the last half hour-I put mine in with the rest of the ingredients and the spinach was a little mushy.  -  12 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was okay. I pretty much followed the recipe and I felt like it was missing something. Next time, I WILL use spicy sausage and add white beans. I think it would also benefit from some fresh basil and parsley. It smelled wonderful, and I served it with a caesar salad and garlic rolls. Oh, by the way, since sausage links are sold mostly in packages of 5, just throw them all in and use 8 cups of broth instead of 6. It works.  -  20 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
