In a small sauce pot combine the cherries and wine, reduce by 1/3 and let cool. While the cherries are cooling, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saute pan and saute sausages, mushroom, carrot, and leeks, until soft and the sausages are cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside. Finish the pesto by combining the cherries, basil, walnuts, and garlic in a food processor and pulse. While blending, slowly add 1 cup of olive oil until all is incorporated and you have a well-emulsified pesto. Remove pesto to a mixing bowl and, if using, fold in the cheese. To the sauteed vegetables, add 2 cups of purple passion rice, cooked to manufacturer's specifications, toss with the pesto, and baby spinach. Serve immediately.
