We make this for our community soup nite,subsituting meatballs sometimes, the food processor makes lite work of cabbage and oh so fine so the kids don't know it is there. I have passed this on to other communtiy dinner nights.The spaggett disappears if you reheat, so best eaten the first time around.
This is a good soup. I like the spaghetti in it because it makes it more filling. I used 2 pinto beans and 1 kidney because I ran out of kidney beans. The only thing I would do differently next time is break up the spaghetti more. Breaking it once made it hard to eat with a spoon. This makes a huge batch and I froze single servings for lunch.
I was very disappointed with this recipe after reading the reviews. It tasted like what chef boyardee would be like if it was healthy and natural. It wasn't a bad taste, but not worth the work. I would only make it again to get rid of leftover cabbage.
