  • 1 pound Italian sweet sausage, See NOTE 1
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 2 cans beef broth, 14.5 oz size cans
  • 1 can Italian-style stewed tomatoes 14.5 oz size can
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 can great northern beans, undrained 14.5 oz size can
  • 2 small zucchini, cubed
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, packed, rinsed and torn into small pieces
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • In a large pot, brown sausage with garlic.
  • Stir in broth, tomatoes and carrots. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Stir in beans with liquid, and cubed zucchini.
  • Cover, and simmer another 15 minutes, or until zucchini is tender
  • Remove from heat, add spinach. Replace lid allowing the heat from the soup to cook the spinach leaves for just 2 or 3 minutes so the spinach remains green and slightly firm.
  • Soup is ready to serve and wasn’t that quick!


1. Can substitute hot Italian sausage, if preferred. 
2. Turkey Italian sausage is a great alternative in this recipe, too.
3. Cannellini beans are a fine substitute for great northern beans, if that is  what you have on hand.
