This is a recipe for Spinach and Sausage Country Soup, which is a unique and rustic Italian style soup. The soup is not heavy, quick and easy to make, and can be enjoyed year round. The recipe originated from the March 2007 issue Cooking Light magazine, and the original version can be found on the MyRecipes website. Obviously, the original recipe uses dietary focused ingredients, such as hot turkey sausage and fat free broth. The recipe is quite adaptable in that manner, and any of the ingredients can be adjusted. My modifications the original recipe were minor, such as some changes in measurements. For the purpose of simplicity, the recipe below lists non-dietary focused ingredients. I have made it both ways, such as with hot Italian turkey sausage and fat free broth, and was pleased with the result. The usage of Romano cheese truly complements the flavor, and I would not recommend any substitution until you have tried it.
