Easy cabbage apple sausage soup
We love having this cabbage, apple and sausage soup for lunch.  Cabbage, apple, sausage soup is comfort food your family will enjoy and keeps well for several days refrigerated.  The recipe could be doubled.  I have not tried freezing this soup.  You might also like our recipe for Ritzy Cabbage Casserole.

  1. We’re from Texas and we like our food with a little bite to it. I make this with a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes (plus a little water to make up the difference) in place of one of the cans of chicken broth. YUMMY!
