Sausage and Potato Soup with Spinach

This is the last official post for Secret Recipe Club. So I couldn't be more thrilled to be assigned to Sarah's blog, Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. Sarah has been the tour de force behind the SRC for a while, and I want to thank her for all her hard work; it's so fun to be involved in this exchange.

Sarah has a ton of recipes on her blog. She really IS fantastical at sharing recipes. When I saw the recipe for this soup, I knew it would be the perfect choice. I made this soup on the day of the first snowfall in Minnesota (November 18 - not too shabby, folks!) and it was a great dinner.

We loved the soup - it was perfect for a (sort of) snowy day. I love the combination of spicy sausage, tender red potatoes and the colorful spinach. A little cream and parmesan at the end really makes this soup special. The hot Italian sausage was a bit much for my family, so next time I'll use mild.

Thanks, Sarah, for a great recipe, and for a wonderful run with SRC!

Sausage and Potato Soup with Spinach

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 pound Italian sausage
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, diced
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
5 cups chicken broth
1 pound red potatoes, diced
4 cups baby spinach
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add sausage. Crumble and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.

Add garlic, onion, oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Stir often while cooking for about 2 to 3 minutes until onions are translucent. Add chicken broth, then bring to a boil.

Once boiling, add potatoes and cook for about 10 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Add spinach and stir until it wilts. Then stir in heavy cream and Parmesan cheese and cook for another minute. Serves 6.


  1. That soup looks amazing. Sad to see Src go, but you certainly went out with a great recipe!

  2. This soup is the perfect way to warm up on cold days, with all the comfort from the sausage, potatoes, and cheese. There is nothing better for meals this holiday weekend. Great choice for the SRC. It's been fun being in team C with you Sara!

  3. Any soup with sausage and potatoes has been my favorite lately! I'm surprised Minnesota held off until mid-November to snow. My grandparents were without internet/cable/phone for a couple days and we were a little worried because we couldn't get in touch with them - but thankfully that was all it was. Stay warm this winter!! :) And thank you for your kind words!

  4. The perfect type of soup to warm up on a cold fall day! Great SRC recipe!

  5. i make a similar soup every winter...delicious!

  6. Definitely looks like a great soup for the winter. Love all those flavors! Great last pick!

  7. A nice and filling soup... feeling sad of SRC ending...
