Rebollita ( Italian Cabbage Soup)

READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Rebollita in Italian means "reboiled". This is a slightly changed verison of recipe from William-Sonoma's SOUP FOR SUPPER...and modified for the crock pot. Easy and tasty. Freezes well.(Refrigeration time is not included in Cooking Time.)

Fabulous soup. I was looking to use up some ham, cabbage & fresh tomatoes out of the garden. Loved the addition of the chili/hot sauce. Used navy beans & kept all other ingredients as listed. Very tasty recipe, thanks for sharing
