    Tuscan Turkey Italian Sausage and Barley Stew
    (makes 6 servings)
    1 lb. turkey Italian sausage casings removed
    1 TBS olive oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms
    2 Tbs. fresh chopped basil
    1 tsp. dried oregano
    1 cup frozen chopped spinach thawed and squeezed
    2 cloves minced garlic
    2 tsp. red pepper flakes (or less if you don't like the heat)
    1 can great northern beans rinsed and drained
    2 1/2 Tbs. flour
    3 cups fat free chicken broth
    salt and pepper to taste


Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add a tsp. of olive oil. Add sausage to pan and crumble and brown. Remove sausage and set aside. Add remaining oil to pan and when heated add mushrooms, onion, basil and oregano. Let cook for a few minutes and add flour. Stir frequently and cook for a couple minutes more (some of the flour may begin to stick but that is okay, when the broth is added it will lift off the pan). Deglaze the pan with the broth and scrape up any bits off the bottom of the pan. Add remaining ingredients except barley including sausage and let simmer for about 6-8 minutes. Makes 8 one cup servings.
