2 Pot Stove Top Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

I love stuffed cabbage rolls but don't have the time or patience to stuff them. I usually make a casserole version in the oven but after fooling around with a few recipes I had on hand, I found this way much quicker and just as tasty. Makes a great busy weeknight dinner. I like to serve this with some warm bread or dinner rolls. I also like to make the rice with a recipe posted by Jan S, #53546 Perfect rice every time we cook it!

I loved this, the only thing I changed was rather than using water I used extra tomato sauce to keep the flavour ,I also added some oregano and seasoned salt. Delish!!
