Can't go wrong with all the ingredients

I've been making this for years and usually use kielbasa. I add it during the last 15-20 minutes of cook time as I don't like for the sausage to get too soft.

I grate some carrot into the skillet also, it adds a little color and flavor. I have made this for years and it is a favorite

I prepared this dish last night for New Year's Eve dinner. I made a few changes to the recipe; it was one of the best dishes so far. I used Olive oil, in which I cooked the onion and garlic. I added broccoli and cauliflower as well. The broccoli added color; salt and pepper, more olive oil and topped with Parmessan cheese.

Love this recipe

I love this dish. I would suggest adding keilbossa or ham chunks to make it an all in one supper dish.


I dearly love cabbage. I think you could cook the sausage with the cabbage and noodles tho!

There was a local Polish restaurant where we used to get a similar dish, only with egg noodles, some butter added, and a little chopped bacon. It is unbelievably tasty for such a simple dish!

I have had it many times over the years, minus the bacon. I believe it is called Halushki.

In our Slovak household, it was called "sheef-leeky" (phonetically). Used the wide noodles and added sugar to taste. Haluski are small individual dumplings made with flour, egg, and water, then boiled for a few minutes till they lost to the top.

Not "lost" but "float" (darn auto-correct).

Very good! I definitely will make it again and again. The only change I made was to add some ham pieces while it was cooking.

Tis is awesome, been making for years, we call it "Kraut Pretzel"!!! yummo..:)

Instead of sausage, I suggest adding Hoffy "Hollywood Stand" hot dogs. They are truly delicious! The only store I have been able to locate them at is Stater Bros market.

This recipe for Farmer's Cabbage and Pasta is a side dish. The sausage you see in the picture is merely a suggestion to serve with the cabbage and pasta. Thank you for all of your comments! Enjoy!

OOPS! There's sausage in the picture, where is it in the recipe?

See my suggestion above

Sausage is on the side not in the Cabage and Noodles

I make a dish like this but instead of sausage I use some good smoked bacon. The leftovers if any I reheat in a frying pan, then add some beaten eggs and eat it for breakfast. It's really tasty

I like to add a sprinkle of caraway seed.

It's called "halushki" in the Pennsylvania anthracite coal region. It tastes even better the next day once the flavors blend.


This is an old Lenten favorite

We didn't care very much for this dish. :(

I tried this the other night it was so easy to make. It was delish. My husband made a suggestion, trying not to hurt my cooking ego, to add either some condensed tomato soup with it or some crushed tomatoes with herbs and spices. Personally I like it just the way it is. I agree with JanCanCook, this is supper!

This is an old time favorite.

This is not a "side dish for dinner"; this is SUPPER!


Mom & I watch almost every day. Mom wants me to make it for her. Mr. Food will always be missed. Glad you are continuing the site. Keep up the good work. (:

This one of our favorite meals...never tried it with kielbassa but will now. Mr.Food always made cooking simple and good...miss him!

very anxious to try this,i know it will be delicios, i love all the ingredients. i miss Mr Food, he does have a nice replacement. don't want to miss the segment.

In our Polish house it's called Haluski, just cabbage, onions & homemade noodles fried in butter...salt & pepper to taste...yummy..

I cant wait to try it . We have Oneg (fellowship&pot luck dinner) every Sunday I can't wait to try this. I will dble the recipe, substitute with Turkey sausage, sliced 1/2 coins size and mrs.dash (salt) for those who have health issues but... I cant wait til Sunday

Instead of using the vegetable oil, try frying up some bacon and using that grease to saute the onions and cabbage. The crumble bacon in with the other ingredients.....Delicious!

this was great, i used bacon, and ramen noodles
