Cabbage Sausage Supper

Recipe by Denise in da Kitchen

This is a very good and hearty old-fashioned dish that I think came from Taste of Home. It's almost like a stew or even a soup. I have tried it with keilbasa but it wasn't as good. I like to serve it with rye bread.

Ah, comfort food! DH scarfed down two platefuls. Served with Beer Bread #73440. Even better next day as leftovers. One big change I made, because we like our cabbage tender-crisp... Cooked sausage and onion as directed, then added potatoes, carrots, and water to cook for the 25 minutes. LASTLY, added the chopped cabbage and cooked another 10 minutes. This was perfect for us. Oh, and I halved it. It made two filling meals for the two of us. Only spice it needs is black pepper. Thanks for such an easy, yummy, nutritious dish. Love one dish meals!
