Tuscan Spinach, Bean & Sausage Soup

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/tuscan_spinach_bean_sausage_soup.html

From EatingWell:  January/February 1998

Pantry staples like cannellini beans, frozen spinach and chicken broth make this soup a snap to throw together on a busy weeknight. Make it a meal: Serve with crusty whole-grain bread and sliced tomatoes.

4 servings, 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring sausage and 1/4 inch water to a simmer in a small skillet over medium heat. Cook, uncovered, until water evaporates, 5 to 10 minutes. Continue to cook until the sausage is browned on all sides, about 4 minutes more. Transfer to a cutting board; when cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2-inch pieces.
  2. Combine the sausage, beans, broth, garlic, spinach and marjoram in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in cheese just before serving.
