In a large soup pan put:
16 oz's of Italian Sweet sausage with the casings cut off and cut into little chunks
1 cup of cut up carrots
1 large green bell pepper
1 cup of celery cut up
1 medium onion cut up
1 - 28 oz. can of diced tomatoes
1 can of regular Ro-Tel tomatoes,
1 quart of chicken broth
5 bay leaves, (being careful to remove these after cooked)
Cook this about an hour over a medium fire stirring from time to time.
Then get a cabbage wash good and cut into small pieces.
I used about 4 cups which was a medium size cabbage. (does not make a lot of difference)
Simmer this until cabbage is done will not take long.
Serve with a big pan of cornbread!!! A really different soup and it makes alot!!
Also if you need more liquid just add a little water to make a good broth!
