Sausage and Spinach Saute



This is a super easy meal that will make you strong like Popeye!  The combination of spinach, lemon and spicy Italian sausage is like a party on your tongue :).  I got this recipe from the “Cook Yourself Thin” cookbook.  I have loved every recipe that I have made from it and this is no exception.  At less than 300 calories, this is one big meal!  If you would like to make  my version of sausage and spinach saute…

Here’s what you need…

3 bags of fresh baby spinach

1 lb of spicy Italian chicken sausage, sliced into rounds

2 cloves of garlic, minced

the juice and zest of one lemon

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup of low sodium chicken stock

1/4 tsp salt/pepper

Here’s what you do…

Heat the garlic and olive oil over medium high heat.  Cook the sausage until browned.  Add the spinach, lemon juice and zest, chicken stock and salt and pepper and stir.  Cover and allow to wilt for 5 minutes, stirring half way through.

I served my saute over mashed potatoes and it was delicious!  I will definitely be making this again!  Hope you enjoy.
