  1. Remove and discard the casing from the sausage. Cook the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until the sausage is browned, stirring to crumble meat. Drain well, and set aside.
  2. Saute the onion and garlic in oil in a large Dutch oven until tender. Add the reserved sausage and broth; stir well. Bring to a boil; stir in the cabbage and next 9 ingredients. Return the mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add macaroni; simmer, uncovered for 15 minutes or until the macaroni is tender.
  4. Ladle the soup into individual soup bowls. Sprinkle each serving with Pamesan cheese.

This is one delicious soup! A wonderful hearty soup that doesn't need anything to accompany it unless you want some crusty bread.I didn't have turnips either, but wouldn't have had room for them. : ) Added more broth to be sure the pasta didn't stick to the pan. This make a large batch, but that means more leftovers and you can freeze it as well. Made for PRMR, April, 2014.

No turnips around here but everything else went into the pot, lol. This is very thick and if you really want a soup plan to add more liquid. That said, this is purely yummy comfort food that smells every as good as it tastes. It's also a real tummy filler and I found that a small bowl was enough for me with a side salad. I also need to say that I made 1 qt and used couple of small veggie sausage patties (I love these veggie sausages!). Once again, delicious!

Mine became more stew than soup but was the most delicious meal. There are leftovers that I will add more stock to, so I can have the full Zuppa experience tomorrow. I used basil and tomatoes from the garden. This is such a versatile and family friendly meal and looks and smells so inviting that even the DD just recovering from having her wisdom teeth out sampled a tiny serve.
