    Very tasty! I browned the sausage as suggested . I was making this for a freezer soup when I thaw it I may add some shredded cheddar to it when I heat it up.

    I followed direction but there was little flavor. I added an extra cup of broth and parsley, onion bbq rub spice and then it tasted much better.

    Delicious! I did make a few changes though...trying to use up leftovers. I added 2 extra cups of broth, 3 diced potatoes, 1 cup of applesauce, and a Tbls. of parsley. We served it over rice as well. Very good flavor in this recipe.

    Easy recipe and very tasty. I followed other reviewer's advice and grilled the sausage and added carrots and garlic powder. No additional salt was needed. I used chicken & apple sausage that is a little spicy but lower in fat. The extra spice in the sausage kicked it up a notch, especially with the added black pepper. Next time I prepare this recipe, if use this same sausage, I will omit the pepper. It was a little too spicy for some family members, but I loved it!

    Loved this easy recipe! I added 1 cup frozen corn and five diced potatoes for a more "stew-like" meal. I also omitted adding any additional salt until then end, and just to taste. Thanks for a hearty weeknight soup recipe that can be prepared quickly!

    Good quick soup for supper. As others did, I too doubled and browned the sausage and decreased the salt. This'll be a keeper! Even hubby, who is not wild about cabbage, enjoyed this soup.

    So simple and so delicious! A definite keeper! I doubled the recipe, grilled my sausage first, and added a box of white wine, rosemary, thyme and oregano chicken broth, along with regular chicken broth. Plan to add sliced carrots next time, after reading others reviews.
