Sausage and Spinach Soup

I was figuring out our dinner menu for the week and asked if husband wanted anything special.  He asked for French Onion soup, he got Sausage and Spinach soup instead.

This recipe is from Cooking Light, March 2007.

No substitutions were made.

Remove casings from sausage.  Cook sausage in a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over high heat until browned, stirring to crumble.  Add onion and 2 tsp garlic to pan; cook for 2 minutes.  Stir in 1/2 c water, beans, tomatoes and broth.  Cover and bring to a boil.  Uncover and cook for 3 minutes or until slightly thick.  Remove from heat, and stir in spinach, basil and oregano.  Ladle 1 1/2 c soup into each of 4 bowls, and sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 tsp cheese.
