Description

This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn't seem to be a lot of variety... and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound Italian sausage
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 (48 fluid ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup uncooked pearl barley
Directions
  1. 1. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage, onion, and garlic until the sausage is evenly brown. Season with Italian seasoning. Remove from heat, and drain.
  2. 2. In a slow cooker, mix the sausage mixture, chicken broth, carrot, spinach, and barley.
  3. 3. Cover, and cook 4 hours on High or 6 to 8 hours on Low.
