Brrrr, it's cold outside. We had a warm spell for a few days, sunny, high 60s, but now the storms have returned and Sacramento is getting a good chilly drenching. Perfect timing for a big pot of warm and filling cabbage stew. This is an Italian version, using Savoy cabbage (the round, wrinkly cabbage which has a milder taste than regular cabbage), Italian sausage, white beans, fresh parsley, and Parmesan cheese. I'm so used to German treatments of cabbage, I'm surprised at how good this stew is with the Italian sausage and Parmesan. I don't usually think of Parm and cabbage paired together, but they really do work in this stew. Easy to make and easy on the budget. Buon appetito!
