I'll be honest when Lisa told me we were having cabbage and noodles, my first thought was a very mature "yuck". Yes, I still let a few ingredients influence how I think an entire dish might taste. Cabbage...yeah it made me pause. But very glad I kept an open mind and even more grateful for Lisa cooking it!
Lisa explains that this recipe was "floating around Facebook" with some positive reviews so she gave it a whirl.
12 oz kielbasa or sausage, sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
¼ cup salted butter
1 large onion, diced
½ head cabbage, chopped (appox 6-7 cups)
1 clove garlic, minced
⅔ cup frozen peas
8 oz uncooked egg noodles
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
1. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Cook sausage until lightly browned.
3. Add remaining olive oil, butter and onion. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
4. Add cabbage and garlic. Cook until tender (10-15 minutes). Stir in peas, noodles and salt & pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
That's it! Pretty simple. About 40 minutes between prep and cook time.
But Lisa and I loved it. I think we all went back for an extra serving so between the 4 of us, we actually polished it off!
