    This is a wonderful winter soup, but can be used as a evening meal with all the healthy foods included, served with a good Portuguese bread or Italian bread, I use Portuguese Chourico instead of the sausage, and use kale or collard greens instead of cabbage. It is one of my favorite soups. - 9/15/07
