Found this newspaper clipping tucked away among some old papers I was searching through, but don't know what newspaper it came from. Sounds perfect for these cold nights!

Great soup, doesn't take long to make and has a lot more flavor than other cabbage soups I have tried. My neighbor brought me a basketball size cabbage out of his garden today and I used about a 1/4 of it to make a big pot of this soup. This one's a keeper for sure.
This is a really flavourful, easy to throw together soup! The sausage is really nice with the tomato and paprika. Made exactly as stated. Wouldn't change a thing. Thanks Culinary Queen!
