Ingredients

2 links hot Italian-style turkey sausage

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, chopped

1 19-ounce can lentil soup

2 cups individually quick-frozen (IQF) spinach

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 cup uncooked converted white rice

Freshly ground pepper to taste

1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 2- to 2 1/2-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Remove casings from sausage and crumble with a fork.
  2. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add sausage and onion; cook, stirring, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add soup, spinach and oregano; heat through. Add rice and season with pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking dish; cover with foil. Bake until rice is tender, about 35 minutes. Top with Cheddar and bake uncovered until the cheese is melted, a few minutes longer.
