    This recipe originates from the Basque people of northeastern Spain and southwestern France. This is a very hearty soup, something I'd recommend for a cold winter day.

      Made for dinner last night. Really liked it. Good flavor and texture. I used some white potatoes and some sweet potatoes which I thought worked well. The sweet potatoes break down a little more and add to the "stewy" quality of the soup. Very different from the typical creamy sausage and potato soup.

      My husband rated this as a four because he is "not fond of cabbage" My SIL and myself say 5 although it could use more carrots. Son wouldnt try it but my daughter liked it. Its a very flavorful and hardy soup. Thanks for a good keeper recipe.

      This is a very flavorful soup. I made exactly as written, except didn't have any celery leaves so I didn't use them. I am always a bit leary of adding wine to dishes, as it leaves a taste I'm not particularly fond of, but I did use a dry red wine in this, and it actually enhanced the other flavors in the soup. I particularly liked the flavor of the smoked sausage in this. Glad I chose this recipe - it's a keeper and one I will make again. Made for your 2012 FOOTBALL POOL win.
