GREAT dish!!!

We found this just pretty good not great. I found that it needed to bake longer than directions. I also boiled the cabbage first in a deep chef's pan, drained, put on plate and then did the veggies and put cabbage back in same pan, spooned the veggie mix over it and then baked in the chef pan. The recipe as written uses too many pans and bowls for a side dish IMO.

This was really delicious. Although I didn't use a 28oz can but a 15oz petite diced it still did the trick. I used the left overs for sandwiches the next day. Sliced some Italian bread topped it with the cabbage and a slice of swiss cheese and grilled on my small Goerge Foreman grill. It was simply delicious. Will definitely have as a simple go-to side dish.

This was delish. So easy and tasty. I will keep this one in my fav's. We are cabbage lover's.

Cabbage is good anytime but this sounds out of this world. I shall try it soon.thanks

3 pans + what you use to drain the cabbage just for a side dish? Sounds good but too much time in the kitchen. Why couldn't you just bake everything together or use a slow cooker & add the cheese near the end of cooking time? Put the test kitchen to work and see. Thanks

Wow.....cabbage is sooooooooooo good anyhow, but add some polish sausage in this and it's sooooooooooooo gooooooood

My same thought as I read this recipe! Any sausage would do. Somehow sausage and cabbage go together.

Add some potatoes & you have a dinner not so bad after all .

This sounded great until I got to the cheese part! Going to try it without the cheese!

if you cut the core out-will the wedges stay together?

When I boil cabbage I cut the core out, to the point that when you cut in wedges there is a little core left to hold each wedge together. I hope I explained it well enough. Some leaves will fall off, but for the most part it will stay together. The little bit of core will cook up tender and you can eat it.
