I made this several times already, created this soup thru trial & error. Eat it alone or as a side, it is a hearty soup & taste yummy!



Serves 4 to 6

Ingredients:

5 small maple flavour sausages, remove the outler layer skin
(Alternately, buy a pack of grounded sausage & use half of it)
1 med size white onion, cubed
1 carrot, peeled & cubed
2 stalks of celery, cubed
1/2 cabbage, sliced thinly
1 big potato, peeled & cubed
3 cans (14oz each) chicken stock
2 med size tomatoes, cubed
2 dried bay leaves
Salt & black pepper
1 rice bowl size of any short pasta

Method:

1. Pinch the sausages into small rounds & pan fry them till browned in extra virgin olive oil.
2. Drain on paper towel & set aside.
3. Pour the left over oil from frying sausages into a med size pot.
4. Saute onions in the pot, followed by carrots, celery, cabbage & potatoes. Sprinkle some salt & black pepper into the veggies & stir them well.
5. When veggies are beginning to get tender, pour in chicken stock & add in some water until the soup is abt 3/4 full in the pot. Cover pot & let boil.
6. When soup boils, add in tomatoes, browned sausages & bay leaves. Turn fire to low & let soup simmer for abt 30 to 45 mins.
7. Add in pasta the last, let boil for abt 8 mins & serve.

Note:

You may add in any veggies to your preference. May omit sausage if you do not like meat. If you are not serving the soup immediately, do not add in the pasta yet because pasta will expand & get too soggy in the soup if left for a long time, it's best to cook pasta in the soup juz before you serve.
