This is an adaptation of Foodiewife's wonderful Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup recipe. Substituting rice for the tortellini, skipping the hot pepper flakes, using coarsely-ground pepper and changing the proportions a bit turns it into a satisfying, healthy alternative to Bertucci's sausage soup, which my husband and I adore but which is loaded with fat and calories.
Note: All except 2 Tbsp. of the rendered salt pork fat is discarded; since my MIL made the recipe, I don't know how much of the pork fat was discarded, so I included all of it in the nutritional data.
