The longer this dish sits the better it tastes! We enjoyed it for dinner but thought the leftovers were even better. I used a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce and instant rice. I didn't add the sugar and used a 16 ounce bag of coleslaw mix. I covered the mixture for the first 45 minutes and then stirred it. It seemed dry so I added another 1/2 cup of water. I also tasted it and it seemed a bit bland so I added some pepper too. I then cooked uncovered for the remaining 45 minutes. I used swiss cheese. Next time I would add more seasonings to the mixture.
I love cabbage rolls/golumpki's and that's what this recipe reminds me of. I was a little skeptical about the dill, but I do love dill flavoring so I went with it. I doubled the water as other suggested, and I don't know what it turns out without doubling, but it was VERY watery. As a personal preference I might try adding another cup of cabbage as I didn't find this very filling. Then again I'm JUST starting WW. So I need to shrink my stomach. According to the new Points Plus WW Calculator its 6 points per serving.
We all loved this recipe - I can't say enough about it! It was even good left over and the hubby wanted third helpings. The only thing I changed was to stir about halfway through and add another 3/4 cup of water, as per instructions of other reviewers. Hubby said I can make this as often as I want :) Thanks again!
