Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb spicy pork sausage crumbled
  • 1 can (28 oz) diced tomatoes undrained
  • 3 c stock chicken or vegetable
  • 1 tbsp oregano dried
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 inch hard Parmesan rind
  • 2 cans (15 oz) cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 c cabbage cut into bite-sized pieces
  • fresh parsley chopped, optional
  • Parmesan cheese freshly grated, optional

Instructions
 

  • Add crumbled bulk pork sausage to a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until no longer pink inside. Carefully drain excess fat from the pan and return to heat.
  • Add diced tomatoes, chicken or vegetable stock, oregano, garlic powder, and Parmesan rind to pan. Stir to combine and increase heat to medium-high.
  • Cook until liquid almost boils, then reduce heat to medium-low. Add cannellini beans to pan. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Add cabbage to pot and continue simmering until tender, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and ladle into bowls. Garnish with chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese, if desired, and serve immediately. Note: If soup is too thick, add a little more stock. If it is too thin, continue cooking until desired consistency is reached.
