Ingredients

  • 1 pound Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 cup Onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup Celery, diced
  • 1 14.5 ounce can Diced fired roasted tomatoes
  • 12 ounces Frozen cauliflower rice
  • 2 cups Chopped frozen spinach
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 cups Beef broth
  • 2 Beef bouillon cubes, crumbled
  • 1 8 ounce can Tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Tomato paste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for finishing (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large heavy pot with a tight fitting lid add in Italian Sausage, garlic, onion and celery.
  • Cook over medium heat until sausage is cooked through and crumbled and onion and celery are soft.
  • Add in tomatoes, cauliflower rice, frozen spinach, beef broth, bullion cubes, tomato sauce and tomato paste.
  • Stir well and bring to simmer.
  • Reduce heat to low, place lid and let simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve in individual bowls and top with a drizzle of olive oil (optional).

Notes

  • I created this as a clean out the freezer soup, but you can definitely use fresh ingredients.  If using fresh spinach, double the amount.
  • Finishing olive oil is not included in the nutrition information.
  • Storing: This stew will keep in the refrigerator for up to one week.  
  • Freezing: This is a good soup to make as a freezer meal!  Cook and crumble the sausage and let cool.  Add all ingredients to a freezer bag or bowl.  Freeze for up to 4 months.  When ready to serve, let thaw in the refrigerator overnight, pour the contents into a heavy bottom pot and let simmer for 30 minutes.  Serve.
