When cold weather comes, my family always asks when I'm going to make this hearty soup. Cabbage is a perfect partner for potatoes. —Gwen Fritsch, Eastlake, Ohio

"I followed this recipe pretty much exactly as was written, and it was delicious. A definite keeper without needing to make any changes. The only thing I disagree on is the servings. My husband and I had this for dinner and there is only enough left for lunch tomorrow for one of us. Serving 8 with this as a main dish is stretching it quite a bit. It is too good to share!"

"Excellent side soup for a light supper. The dill adds an interesting taste that complements the cabbage well. The chicken broth makes the soup rich without adding too many calories."
