This is an excellent spicy, rich soup. Simple to make, yet delicious! I whipped it up a couple of years ago for my wife and myself, and now I get numerous requests every year to make it. I hope you enjoy. Use bratwurst or your favorite sausage.

This is a tasty, easy to make soup recipe. My husband loved it. The next time I make it however, I would reduce the amount of rice. The recipe calls for 2 cups and I only use 1 1/2 but still found that to be too much. Next time I will only use 1 cup of uncooked rice.

This soup is really great. I did one thing to alter it; we do not eat white rice in our home, so I used a wild rice blend from Wegman's supermarket. It really added to the heartiness of the soup.

This had a good base. garlic, onions, chicken stock and the herbs and heavy cream. I changed alot though. I added chicken with the sausage, italian green beans and diced tomatoes for color and pasta (tortellini or ravioli would be good too). Then topped it with a blend of italian cheeses (parmesean cheese worked well too). My husband loved it!
