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.

From Preshy-- This is terrific! I have made stuffed cabbage rolls for years, trying almost every recipe I have come across, and this one is the best. I has a wonderful flavor and will definitely be on my list for casual company dinners. I put more filling in each roll and it took a larger pan. My choice for sides were mashed potatoes and green beans.

I do not like tomato sauce and this recipe was the best I have ever had for cabbage rolls. My husband wants me to make it once a week. You may serve this for guests for dinner, they will love it sharron cant vancouver b.C.
