This is one of my top three cabbage recipes. It's healthy and so good.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A super comforting and easy soup to throw together. The sausage adds a wonderful smoky flavor and richness. Cabbage, carrots, and potatoes are basic ingredients but add a lot of heartiness and flavor. A lazy meal on a cold day when you don't feel like cooking.
