Paleo Cajun Sausage Stew with Peppers, Onions, and Spinach

Paleo Cajun Sausage StewThis recipe for Paleo Cajun Sausage stew is quickly becoming a favorite in our household. The ingredients are basic, the instructions simple. The batch is supposed to serve four, but my wife and I can easily gobble down two-thirds of the pot, with no guilt, of course. Don’t skimp on the pork sausage. Enjoy!
