Talk about some comfort food! If old Tom Turkey knew what joy my family gets from this stew, he would run for the woods. It’s great to eat when it’s cold, rainy or even sunny outside.
1 medium onion cut up into wedges
1 medium sweet pepper chopped
1 medium sweet red pepper chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1 14 to 16oz. can of low-sodium tomatoes un-drained and cut up
1/2 cup dry red wine
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 tbs. Italian seasoning
3 cups water

2 cups fresh spinach
1 package turkey sausage

Add un-drained tomatoes, wine, chicken bouillon, and Italian seasoning.
Bring to boil, cover and simmer 10 min.
Coat large skillet with nonstick cooking spray (Pam olive oil).
Over medium heat cook sausage until golden brown on both sides.

Turkey is a good source of protein that is low in saturated fat. I like to use turkey sausage in place of pork sausage, especially in stews and casseroles. Spinach is iron rich and high in vitamin A and C. Tomatoes are full of antioxidants and the whole meal is high in fiber and low in cholesterol, sodium and sugar.
