As is, this is just sausage and rice and needs quite a bit of help - like a lot less rice and a lot more of something else. I knew going in this was going to have too much rice so I prepared HALF the amount called for in advance, in chicken broth, and held it aside until I was ready to just add it to the soup at the end. I added mushrooms, carrots and celery to the sausage to give this some color and substance and they were great contributions. I added the rice at the end, then stirred in the cream and... I was still disappointed. It could have been creamier for one thing. And all those herbs just floated to the top and looked very unattractive; so unattractive that I skimmed most of it off and the soup was much improved, particularly in its appearance. We both liked the final result but it traveled a long way in the process to get to that point.
