You can use from 1-3 pounds of sausage depending on your tastes. I love dipping buttered rye bread in the soup - must be my Polish genes.

This was a great recipe. I used leftover kielbasa from Easter dinner. Next time if I use leftover kielbasa, I would wait to add until last, so it won't be overcooked. Also, we love carrots, so I'd add more of them. Will definitely be making this again.

I made this for dinner tonight. Next time I might cut back on the cabbage a little so the other flavors come through more.

This was amazing! My Husband, who is Polish, gave his compliments to the chef! He said it reminded him of a soup he used to eat when he was little. Anyway, I followed the directions to a T and the soup came out great! Thanks!
