“This is a recipe I adapted to fit our low(er) carb lifestyle but it is my non-low carb Dad's favorite soup ever! We like it spicy so I really use about a tablespoon of Frank's hot sauce. You can adjust it to your taste. Even the spinach "haters" in my house love this soup. The main thing that changes from a regular Toscano soup and this is that there are no potatoes. You can add them if you want a more "traditional" soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage in a 4-quart soup pot.
  2. Season with garlic powder and pepper.
  3. Add broth and spinach and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
  4. Add cream and hot sauce and simmer a few minutes until cream is heated.
  5. Add salt to taste (I usually do add salt but some people may find the chicken broth has enough salt to suit their taste).
  6. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
