Sausage Soup with Spinach & Wild Rice

Sausage Soup with Spinach & Wild Rice

This recipe comes from my mom – who recently had it laying out when I stopped by for a visit.  I copied it down and decided with winter still clearly here, that it would make a hearty dinner.

We love wild rice, but were not sure how it would combine with the Italian style of this soup – but, it was great.

A nice change from our normal array of soups.
