Typically soups tend to bore me and aren't always hearty enough to serve for dinner. However, this soup really fills you up without being too high in fat or calories.
1 pound, Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
3.5 cups chicken stock
2 cups spinach
1 onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp oregano
