UnStuffed Cabbage Casserole Recipe

With a Polish heritage (I know, I know, go ahead and insert the appropriate jokes now), stuffed cabbage was one recipe my Italian grandma often fixed for my Polish grandpa.

I still prepare Stuffed Cabbage today for our family. We absolutely love it! I, however, do not always have the time to boil the cabbage leaves and stuff them. It is quite a process! So, I tweaked a recipe from to match what we already love.

This version of Un-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls saves so much time! By using ingredients in the traditional stuffed cabbage recipe, it captures the same flavors but without the long process of boiling cabbage and stuffing the leaves!
