I actually made that once years ago for a group of pre-schoolers on St. Patricks Day.

We had Italian sausage and pasta with pesto. The Italian sausage was organic and oh my goodness yummy. It claimed to be hot, but there was just a hint of heat.

Steve, that's an interesting looking soup. Sadly, I'm not a fan of cabbage in my soup, any kind of soup. Happily, all four recipe versions I saw online omitted it. I guess your aunt created her own special version.

Cleaned out most of the leftovers to make room for my wide variety of Thanksgiving sides. Himself finished the last little bits of last night's jambalaya, and also the last few mouthfuls of chicken soup with noodles. I had about half the leftover beef with gravy and served it up over mashed potatoes, then had a banana and called that my veggie.

When I made lasagna last weekend, I made three small ones: one to eat Saturday, one to leave in the freezer for my FIL, and one for us to bring home. The one we brought home in the cooler thawed on the way back and I didn't want to freeze it again, so we had it last night with salad and garlic bread.

My daughter is home from college so she wanted Eggplant and spinach lasagna. Destroyed my effort to eat low carb. I was too lazy to make another one low carb.

Lasagna made with pasta is high carb. Wondering why you thought lasagna made with with eggplant and spinach isn't low carb? Veggies that aren't starch are a good thing.

My aunt's original recipe actually calls for sauerkraut, rather than cabbage. My wife is not a fan of kraut in any way, shape, or form, but she will eat cabbage. So that was my compromise for the sake of maintaining marital bliss.

If it were up to me, though, I would still use sauerkraut. I think it has much more flavor.

In the end, it's just a great recipe for using up leftovers. The base of the soup works with a lot of different meats and vegetables.
