White Bean, Sausage and Spinach Soup

Perfect on a cool night with a loaf of crusty bread – try the white [1] or the semolina [2].

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 package (about 8 to 10) spicy Italian sausages
1 onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 (32 ounce) boxes Imagine chicken broth (pareve or meat)
2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained
2 (8 ounce) bags fresh spinach
1 teaspoon pepper

In a medium stockpot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage, onion and garlic and sauté for about 10 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add beans, spinach and pepper and cook an additional 5 to 10 minutes. If desired, purée the beans slightly with a hand blender to give more body to the soup.
