Italian Chicken Sausage Soup

Remember the other day when I gave you the recipe for Chicken Sausage Meatballs? I told you I was planning a soup, and here it is. I had made enough chicken sausage for several meals, so this chicken came from the freezer today. It was not made into balls, I just froze it as a chunk. I defrosted in a microwave, then added to the pot to brown.

Italian Chicken Sausage Soup for One

3-4 ounces of chicken sausage
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
2 cups fresh spinach
pinch of lemon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
pinch of pepper
salt to taste

Lightly brown the chicken sausage in the soup pot. Add all remaining ingredients and simmer gently for 5-10 minutes.

The chicken sausage is really flavorful and adds so much to the soup. Overall, this is very light on calories too. I just love all those soup commercials that claim how healthy and light their soups are. I am sure with all the additives, this home made soup is far healthier...and fresher tasting too!

You are absolutely right about homemade soups feeling better for you than store bought! You used natural ingredients and who knows what they use! I can't wait to try this one!
