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.

Great recipe (Can you say "Comfort Food"). I took other reviewers advise and used less then 1/2 the salt that was called for. sprinkled in a little garlic powder and magically I had a great bowl of soup. Will definitely make again.
