  • 1 ⅓ Pound Alsum russet potatoes peeled and cut into ¾-inch chunks, about 4 medium potatoes
  • 14 Ounce Can nonfat reduced-sodium chicken broth*
  • 1 Cup Water

  • In 3-quart saucepan, cover potatoes with broth and water; add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to boiling over high heat; reduce heat, cover and cook until potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add cabbage and onion. Sauté 10 minutes, tossing occasionally. Add sausage; continue to sauté, about 10 minutes, tossing occasionally, until vegetables and sausage begin to brown. Add carrot; set aside.
