Adapted from Gooseberry Patch's In the Kitchen with Family & Friends, this super-thick and hearty stew really satisfies. Yummm...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a deep saucepan, sauté sausage in oil until browned; add onion, garlic, carrots and basil; cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes; stir in zucchini, tomatoes, beef broth, cabbage, salt and pepper.
  2. Bring stew to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes.
  3. Add beans and pasta; cook an additional 15 minutes or until pasta is tender; add some water or more broth at this time, if necessary, to keep the stew from drying out.

very good. Only used about 1 cup of cabbage, otherwise followed the recipe. Used chicken broth as some of the reviews suggested.

Oh boy was this good! I used turkey kielbasa, chicken broth and fresh basil, other than that I followed the recipe. We really liked the sweetness of the cabbage. We will definitely be making this recipe again. YUMM!

I make this recipe ALL THE TIME!!! I can't get enough of it. I actually haven't put cabbage in it yet, because the original recipe I grabbed didn't have it, but I love cabbage and will definitely be adding it. I found this recipe about 2 months ago, and since then have made it at LEAST half a dozen times. It's a family favorite.
