    This recipe is identical to Kraft Foods' Unstuffed Cabbage skillet recipe except instead of 5 cans of tomato products it uses one 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes and 8 cups of shredded cabbage rather than pasta. Because I love the skillet recipe I know I'll love the low-carb version of this soup. Thanks for sharing.

    Delicious! And so simple and quick! Used ground Italian sausage, because that's what I had on hand. Also cooked some elbows separately (again had about 1/4 box left) and was freezing 2/3 of soup. A definite keeper. Thanks Sherly!

    Absolutely love this soup! Omitted the noodles and corn but otherwise made it exactly as written. Delicious! Thanks so much.

    I love this recipe but I have changed a few things. I have omitted both the noodles and corn. I added shredded zucchini and mushrooms and I double the recipe. This freezes really well.

    Delicious! I have made this soup several times, and the only thing I do differently is to cook the pasta separately (to less than al dente in diluted beef broth to take on flavor) from the soup and add it at the end to finish cooking in the soup. I have found if I totally cook the pasta in the soup, it absorbs all the liquid. If I know we will not be consuming all the soup in one meal (which we will not without guests, as it’s just my husband and myself), I have even cooked the noodles separately and ladled the soup over them to avoid over-cooked “mushy” pasta when reheated. This is a comfort food soup for sure, and we like the corn for crunch, even though lasagna typically doesn’t include corn. For those that do not like the variation, it is easy to adjust the recipe according to your own personal taste.

    This turned out a little thick to be considered soup, but it wasn't bad. If you leave out the beef broth, it's almost the exact same recipe for a skillet lasagna that I make from Betty Crocker, except I use a jar of spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes/paste/sauce.

    My very very picky husband loved this! We all had second helping and I beat everyone to lunch leftovers! New favorite recipe. Will try adding more and different veggies. Thank you!

    This is a delicious soup done exactly as the recipe is and I love the versatility to add to it for so many additional dishes. I add the pasta separate since my husband and I like different things...I use penne and he likes thin spaghetti. I took it from the soup...added more vegetable (I just love alot of veggies) Zucchini and topped with spinach. Stirred in some ricotta and mozzarella for a creamier soup the 2nd day. Freeze some for a quick future soup. 2nd day from then I use it to stuff some large shells with ricotta and the soup mixture over it and baked with mozzarella again. I think there is so much to do with this great soup the possibilities are endless! Thanks for the recipe!

    This is one of our favorite soups. I made only a few minor changes by using Italian style tomatoes and omitting the corn and tomato paste. I had some extra lasagna noodles so broke them into pieces and used them. Yummy! This is a delicious soup. Volunteer Field Editor
