I just LOVE soup recipes for cold and rainy days. We have had quite a few of those recently in East Tx, so a big pot of hot soup sounded just right! I honestly just made this soup from things I already had in my fridge and needed to use up! I will definitely be making it again though. So make this soup, cuddle up under a blanket and watch a good movie on those cold winter nights coming!

Enjoy! Xo


1 package of sausage (can be any flavor or kind you personally like)

1/2 head of cabbage, chopped

3 carrots, peeled and diced

3 stalks of celery, chopped

3 tablespoons of garlic

1/2 white onion, chopped

1 can of white northern beans

1 large container of chicken broth

Salt and Pepper

2 tbps Worcestershire

2 tbsp Italian Seasoning

I started by slicing open the sausage links and browning the meat. Then chopping the celery, cabbage, carrots and onion and browning that with the sausage.

After that was all nicely browned and the veggies were a little soft, I added in the italian seasoning, Worcestershire, salt and pepper and mixed well. If you get a nicely flavored sausage, you won’t need to use much seasoning!

Then I added the chicken broth (and I think some extra pasta sauce I had leftover from the week) and let simmer for about 30 minutes.

YUM! We had a little rice on the side (Handsome LOVES rice) and I shaved some parmesan on top. This soup was DELICIOUS!
