Just love this soup. I developed it to use up small quantities of veggies, and we fell in love with the flavors. For a less spicy soup, use regular italian sausage. For more heat, add some cayenne pepper and/or crushed red pepper flakes.

Swapped Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Links for the hot Italian sausage. I cut the links in half browned and set aside while I added the remainder of the ingredients. Added the browned links and proceeded with the recipe as written omitting the 1/2 cup cream. Very yummy! This is really your basic soup recipe using basic soup ingredients. A wonderful beginner cook recipe. Using Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Links made it "every body" friendly and was super flavorful. Read More

Sorry I only rated it 1 star as it was why to spicy for me but my husband loved it. I must admit it was probably due to the hot sausage I bought. The woman did say it was very hot. I will probably try again with a regular sausage and just add a few pepper flakes. Read More

Made this for dinner tonight as written except that my sausage was sweet instead of hot and I used about 4 oz of shredded cabbage in place of the cole slaw mix. I also cut back the broth to one quart since we like our soup less watery. My husband and I both loved it! Read More

This is a very good recipe easy and really tasty. I used finely shredded cabbage instead of coleslaw mix and sautéed the onions and garlic with the sausage but otherwise stuck to the recipe as shown. It was a big hit with my hubby. Read More

jammari...its headlined as a cabbage soup. How much cabbage do I use or is it headlined wrongly? It sounds delicious but I am looking for a cabbage soup today.: ) Read More

I swapped the sausage links for a pound of ground pork and put half a cabbage head cut small instead of the coleslaw mix and I put four fresh tomatoes instead of the canned tomatoes. I also added 1 teaspoon each of rosemary parsley basil and oregano. I put three teaspoons of sea salt instead of salt four bay leaves and a whole onion (I fried the onion first with the ground pork once the pork was cooked for a few minutes) five garlic cloves and some ready to eat noodles my kids love. The rest of the recipe I followed besides adding the cabbage celery and onion first and boiled it for and extra thirty minutes before I added the remaining ingredients. Read More

I used Cajun seasoning instead of salt and pepper and added cayenne pepper to spice it up. I did not add any heavy cream and it was delicious. Read More
