Cabbage: The Ultimate Roughage

Cabbage...not much you can do with cabbage, right? Well, at least that's how it goes at our house. I mean, there's "Stuffed Cabbage" (Pigs in the Blanket), but that's about it...right?

Not anymore.
This "Cabbage & Noodles" recipe is so's crazy!

My wife and I came across this recipe by the old "word-of-mouth" method - and while over the phone too. We didn't have a pen handy, so we memorized it. Luckily, the ingredients are so simple and preparing was a snap.

We came across cabbage at the local grocery store at sixty-nine cents a, here we go!

  2. Saute your diced onions with one stick of butter. Really, the whole stick and let simmer.
  3. Chop the head of cabbage into bit size pieces.
  4. After you feel the onions have sauteed to your liking, add the ground sausage.

  6. When the cabbage has cooked down and the butter has melted, mix the sausage & onions carefully with the cabbage.
  7. In a bowl mix the cabbage with already prepared and cooked noodles.
  8. You're done! Enjoy!
