    Cooking spray
    1 cup baby carrots, halved
    1 cup chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    7 ounces turkey kielbasa, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    2 (15.8-ounce) cans Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (6-ounce) bag fresh baby spinach leaves


Heat a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add carrots, onion, garlic, and kielbasa; sauté 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 minutes. Add the broth, Italian seasoning, pepper, and beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes.
