  1. In a medium sauce pan, bring chicken bouillon and 2.5 c of water to a boil. Add barley and cook on low, covered, for 45 minutes. Barley should be tender but still chewy with a firm bite.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large stock pot combine: turkey, spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, onion and garlic. Stir until turkey is well-distributed.
  3. Simmer sauce over medium heat until turkey is cooked, about 30 minutes.
  4. Add spinach and simmer an additional 10 minutes to heat.
  5. Serve meat sauce over barley and top with Parmesan cheese.
