Spicy Veggie Cabbage Soup

"Just love this soup. I developed it to use up small quantities of veggies, and we fell in love with the flavors. For a less spicy soup, use regular italian sausage. For more heat, add some cayenne pepper and/or crushed red pepper flakes."

Swapped Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Links for the hot Italian sausage. I cut the links in half, browned and set aside while I added the remainder of the ingredients. Added the browned links and proceeded with the recipe as written omitting the 1/2 cup cream. Very yummy! This is really your basic soup recipe using basic soup ingredients. A wonderful beginner cook recipe. Using Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Links made it "every body" friendly and was super flavorful.


This is a very good recipe, easy and really tasty. I used finely shredded cabbage instead of coleslaw mix and sautéed the onions and garlic with the sausage but otherwise stuck to the recipe as shown. It was a big hit with my hubby.

I swapped the sausage links for a pound of ground pork and put half a cabbage head cut small instead of the coleslaw mix and I put four fresh tomatoes instead of the canned tomatoes. I also added 1 teaspoon each of rosemary, parsley, basil and oregano. I put three teaspoons of sea salt instead of salt, four bay leaves and a whole onion (I fried the onion first with the ground pork once the pork was cooked for a few minutes), five garlic cloves, and some ready to eat noodles my kids love. The rest of the recipe I followed besides adding the cabbage, celery and onion first and boiled it for and extra thirty minutes before I added the remaining ingredients.
