Cabbage and Sausage

This is one of my favorite main dishes.  Erika was the first one to make it for me almost 10 years ago - who knew I liked cooked cabbage?!  If you have a Sprouts in your area, they have a Chicken and Basil sausage that is super tasty in things.  It's a bit strong on it's own.  They have a bunch of other sausages that work for this, too. 

1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 head cabbage, washed, cored, chopped
1 lb Sausage of choice (smoked sausage - cut up, chicken & basil sausage - remove casings)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Herbs de Provence to taste
1 T. olive oil

Heat a medium to large pot (with a lid) on medium heat, add oil and saute onions until they start becoming translucent.  Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.  Add the sausage (if a smoked sausage, you only have to cook for a couple minutes.  If a raw sausage out of a casing, cook until done).  Once sausage is cooked add the cabbage and stir well.  Cover the pot and cook for 5 mins, stir and repeat until the cabbage is soft.  When the cabbage is soft, it's ready to eat.  Enjoy!

Yours is fancier than mine--I just put sliced Hillsboro Farms sausage and chopped (big chunks) cabbage in a pot with a little water and steam, covered, until everything's done. Your version sounds especially tasty! I'll have to experiment with other sausage, like you recommend.
