This is a modified recipe that I would make substituting hot Italian turkey sausage for the bacon. This recipe is so adaptable...add garlic, change the meat, include more vegetables.

Directions

Directions
1. Prep:
a) Broil/cook turkey sausages until done then cut into chunks of desired size
b) Tear the fresh spinach into pieces
c) Shred carrots, chop the onion up
d) Use a complete bay leaf instead of ground bay
2. In a large skillet or Dutch oven at medium-high heat, add olive oil and sauté carrot and onion until tender, about 5 minutes.
3. Add sausage chunks. Cover mixture with chicken broth, water, and salsa.
4. Mix in lentils (16 ounces of dry lentils), bay leaf, cumin, rosemary. Salt and pepper to taste (salt isn’t included in the nutritional values).
5. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until lentils are tender, 40 to 50 minutes.
6. Stir in spinach and simmer until spinach is wilted, 5 to 10 minutes longer.
