Lettuce Soup

I got this recipe from my friend Renee Wade, but it is similar to what my grandma would make.  Yes, it uses a head of lettuce and kielbasa.  It’s Polish peasant food.  Probably the “real thing” has a potato in it and not a can of soup but my grandma passed many years ago and this is really tasty.
