Recipe

This time of year is all about soup for me. A cold day, lots of blankets, hearty soup, and some time to binge watch my latest TV obsession. Whereas I feel guilty spending a day like this when the sun is shining, as soon as it's cold I relish days like these.

This soup is a twist on a slow cooker soup I make all the time using chicken sausage. All I did was switch out the chicken sausage for vegetarian sausage since I had some veggie loving friends coming over. I like to use spinach but kale, Swiss chard, or any hearty greens will work great. You could also substitute tortellini for the gnocchi depending on what you have on hand.
