It came out great!! After almost 6 cups of beef broth, I added about 3/4 water. Just to cut the salt a little bit. I went a little heavy on the spices and probably could have even gone a touch heavier. It was VERY tasty and filling. Even my 2 year old loved it!

I didn’t have italian herbs cause i am living in italy and they don’t have that here. So i replaced it with parsley. And left out thyme and i used chicken broth instead and it turned out really well anyways. I had low expectations but it came out pretty tasty 😍 thanks for sharing

I made this tonight and it was good, I will make it again. Next time I will have to add a little something to it to put a little bit more spice to it for my taste.

Best cabbage soup ever!!

I didn’t add the tomatoes because I don’t like them. I used fresh herbs to season instead of dried. This soup is AMAZING. I thought it would taste ho hum yeah it’s soup. But me and my family are scarfing it down.. to the point that it may not be a good for you meal anymore😋.
really good and I will try the alternatives.

Fantastic! I added more potatoes-we like thicker soups

Delicious! Love the vegetables combined with the sausage! Definitely a repeat! And extra sharp cheddar goes very well with this soup!
