nunu's - fried cabbage & sausage stew

Recipe by

One day with "projects - appointments - errands, etc." all rolled into that "One Day", it came time to put dinner together. With head of cabbage, Polish sausage, fresh frozen chopped tomatoes and potatoes already on hand .... imagination kicked in and this "Stew" was born! Husband, being German, loves cabbage and usually a light eater, I was beginning to think he was going to make himself sick, if he didn't stop eating soon.
