Italian sausage soup
( SERVES 4 )
A bowl of Italian sausage soup is an offer even most Mafia godfathers probably couldn’t refuse! It is regarded as a ‘big dish’: filling, cheap and prepared with sausage meat and nutritious vegetables, this Italian pleaser provides a very enjoyable complete light evening meal.
- Squeeze out the meat from 3 sausages into rough 3cm balls. Heat the oil in a heavy non-stick saucepan. Sauté the sausage balls for 3-4 minutes — stirring — until lightly coloured.
- Add the garlic, stock, carrots and tomatoes. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the undrained cannellini beans, green beans and corn. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and add the spinach. Cover and allow the soup to cook the spinach. Season. Serve after about 5 minutes.
