This recipe is a great way to get rid of leftovers in your refrigerator. This started with leftover spaghetti meat sauce, leftover broccoli, leftover cabbage and leftover kielbasa I had in my freezer from making Tortellini Kielbasa Soup. I added beans, more sauce, chicken broth, water, a potato, onion and seasoning to make a soup that I call 'Leftover Soup' but my husband calls 'OMG Soup.' A great thing about this soup is its versatility. Use what you have on hand. The leftover stir-fried cabbage and garbanzo beans added great texture to this dish. I prepared stovetop but crockpot also works.
