This quick and easy Cabbage and Sausage is made in one skillet in less than twenty minutes. It combines tender cabbage, onions, and browned Kielbasa sausage. This tasty meal is one the whole family loves and one we have enjoyed more times than I can count over the years. I love to serve this dish with chunks of crusty rye bread, roasted potatoes, or corn muffins.
