When I was a kid, I loved veggies and now that I’m older, I love them even more.  Right near the top of my list is cabbage!

Not only does it taste great either raw or cooked, it’s so good for you!  Typically we use it in cabbage rolls or cabbage roll soup but of course it’s great in a nice crunchy coleslaw too!

Cabbage and Noodles (aka Haluskie) is an old Polish dish and it’s one of my favorites!  Different areas have slightly different versions, Slovak Halusky is more of a potato dumpling while other areas enjoy it as cabbage and noodles.

Regardless of what you call this dish, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sweet flavors of cabbage and a great way to get a meal on the table on a busy weeknight!

 

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe deter you from giving it a try, ingredients don’t have to be fancy to taste amazing!

When seasoning this dish, be generous  with the salt & pepper, it makes this extra good!  I typically use egg noodles in this dish, I love the light fluffy texture and you can use any type of sausage. If you don’t like sausage, feel free to crisp up some bacon (and sub in some of the bacon grease in place of the butter) or skip the meat altogether.
