Chicken Sausage and Leek Soup

Tonight for dinner my wife decided to make a Leek and Sausage Soup for dinner. The flavor was absolutely amazing. It was light, but filling. It was 186 calories for one serving. I never thought Chicken Sausage would taste so good. After years of eating Italian Sausage, I might convert over to Chicken Sausage. The flavor was absolutely stunning.


So what is the recipe?
