Recipe by Diana Adcock

I double the chicken broth/sour cream sauce. These really are fantastic. You can thank my Aunt Carol for these!

This is a most fabulous recipe! I just loved it. Now, if I could just get someone to do all the 'leaves' prep. I wish I knew the most efficient and easiest way to de-leaf the cabbage. I also added a mini bit of homemade tomato sauce to the 'sauce'.... just to give it a rosy glow and a hint of tomato... but not strong.
