My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
This dish is traditional in the Hungarian, Polish and Romanian cuisine.
- 1 medium size cabbage, shredded
- 1 small onion, diced
- 16 oz pappardelle noodles
- 6 TBSP olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste (this dish is delicious with lots and lots of pepper)
- Optional – Bacon or Sausage (if you decide to add bacon or sausage in the dish you would cook it in a pan, remove and continue with cooking the onion and cabbage in the same pan; once the cabbage and noodles are cooked you would stir everything together) sounds delicious!!!
- Shred and massage the cabbage with 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 TBSP olive oil and set aside
- Cook the pasta according to the directions on the packaging, drain and set aside
- Add the remaining olive oil and diced onion to a pan and cook over medium heat
- Add the cabbage and cook for about 5 minutes, add 2 cups of water and continue cooking until tender
- Stir the cabbage and noodles (bacon or sausage if you included that)
- Add seasoning – Lots and Lots of fresh ground pepper
