The standout ingredient here, of course, is the Savoy Cabbage. Though not featured in many recipes, it serves as our eponymous ingredient that not only gives the soup its wonderful flavor, but is high in vitamins (including the elusive vitamin K). We're all about cooking healthy here at Cooking with Nonna, and we'd be remiss if we ignored those hard to reach vitamins all the way up the alphabet.
Essential to any temperature rising meal, meat will be featured alongside of our vegetables, and the Zuppa di Verza is no exception.
Taking the path least traveled, we're going to feature a sweet Italian sausage, only rather than have it in pieces, we're going to actually open the casing and cook the meat as is. As always, we encourage you to experiment with different types of sausages to find the one that works best for you.
It's been yet another absolute pleasure to share the kitchen with the wonderful and vibrant Nonna Nina, but we must be heading down south to a warmer climate. Next stop: Basilicata!
