I have seen several recipes for creamed cabbage and creamed spinach side dishes before, and this seems to be much healthier and lightened up than most. Many call for heavy cream or even cream cheese as the sauce base - both of which are much higher in calories and fat. Leftover cubed ham would be an amazing addition to turn it into a complete meal!

A 4-oz can of chopped green chilies might be good in place of those pimientos.

Won't be a repeat, not much flavor.

I am not a fan of using condensed soups. I made this with a thick basic white sauce and stirred in cooked, crispy bacon crumbles at the ending of cooking time.

I cook this, but use half of a jar of Bacon Alfredo sauce instead of the soup, no pimentos....mmmm good.

put in mushrooms, onions, and garlic. the ideas are endless for this

Do you add water to the can of soup when making creamed cabbage/

No, you do not need to add water to the can of soup. Enjoy!

What are pimientos ?

They are peppers. Pimientos are the red in green olives. Not hot

Good basic recipe and easy too

I agree- definatly the White Sauce-like on your cornstarch box! Not soup!!No pimientos either.

IT is all personal preference ... MR food's recipes are "quck & easy" as he always says You can use mushrooms or even tomatoes if you prefer instead of pimentos or just leave them out and cornstarch is no more or less "healthy" than mushroom soup Mom has used mushroom soup longer than i can remember and she is 87 also Grandma used mushroom soups celerys soup and tomato soups in many dishes Grandma lived to 98 years old one month short of her 99th birthday!

Have also boiled cabbage,drained it and covered with homemade white sauce.It was good too.

I remember some dishes called scalloped cabbage basically a white sauce and cooked cabbage then baked many times with cheese in sauce and topped with buttered breadcrumbs Very Good
