This recipe is a good one for diabetics who are craving a comfort meal. I wouldn't eat often but a great occasional meal. See nutrition info below.
1 tbsp olive or coconut oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 pkg (12-oz) fully cooked Italian chicken sausage links, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 garlic cloves, minced

8 medium-size red potatoes, sliced thin
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen corn
1 1/4 cups vegetable broth
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves

Add the potatoes, corn, broth and black pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 12 to 15 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
