Delicious! Remember to cover the pan before baking, unless you like dry, crunchy casserole (we didn't--I covered it, added more water and baked it another 45 minutes). Prepared one pan exactly as posted, and was very pleased with the results. I was very careful about pouring the tomato sauce mixture evenly over the entire dish so that every part of it was moistened. Used 1/2 a small head of cabbage, but I could have gone for more cabbage, so maybe 2/3rds-3/4ths next time? Also prepared a 2nd pan of this at the same time, using a smaller, deeper Pyrex dish and no meat, and it turned out well. Will make this again this year, and in the years to come when cabbage is in season. Thank you for sharing!

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!

This was a good and easy recipe that I found when looking for a WW-approved dish that used ingredients that I had on hand. Thanks for the posting, Redsie!!

Wonderful! We used shredded roast leftovers in place of the ground beef and replaced the bouillon & water with beef stock. On the advice of other reviewers, we also added 3/4 C more liquid and stirred the casserole a couple of times while baking. We'll definitely make this again.

We loved this. Easy to put together, slip in the oven and forget about it. 90 minutes later---ENJOY! I did double the amount of water due to the other reviews. It was perfect!

We REALLY like this! I used cooked brown rice and added hot sauce. Half went into the freezer but we loved the half we ate. Thanks for this one!
