If you are searching for a really tasty dish made with sausages, then this is really good! it's my own creation, and my family loves this! Although this is a easy dish to put together, the cabbage will need some time to cook to desired tenderness, so this dish will take a couple of hours or a little less on top of the the stove. If you have some over ripe tomatoes chop them up and add into the sauce. All seasonings can be adjusted to suit taste, if you prefer a more sweeter taste, then just add in more brown sugar, you can really use how many sausages that you like, just make certain to purchase the large Italian spicy or regular, not the small breakfast pork sausages. Make certain that you use a very large frypan for this, or a Dutch oven, the cabbage takes up lots of space when cooking. I use my large electric frypan. Serve this over cooked rice. You will love this!

Oh no!! I must have done something wrong, because I didn't like this at all! I had to throw it out. I'm bummed because I have made quite a few recipes from Kitten and they have ALL been fabulous. Maybe the flavors just didn't agree with our taste buds. I think maybe cutting out some of the tomato sauce and soup would have made it better. Way too saucy. Sorry!
The kids even loved it. I used a bit less sugar and vinegar, only one onion, and left out the peppers, but it was still delicious.
I love this dish! I made without the garlic. Thank you Kitty.
