    Good hearty winter soup. Next time I must use a food processor to accomplish the fine chopping! The recipe's times account only for the 2 hours of simmering, nothing else. If you're going to eat sausage and ham, this recipe also gives you a LOT of fiber. The spinach is a garnish; I didn't find that its flavor "completed" the soup. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game.
