Very good! I cheat with the crust and buy the frozen prepared ones and thaw. Good served with mashed potatoes and a salad.

Great dish! This is one of those recipes that you just keep wanting another bite. We are on a low carb diet, so I omitted the crusts. I layered the meat, some cream cheese, cabbage and mushrooms, and more cheese in a casserole dish. The flavors were terrific together. The cabbage was a lovely color which was very eye appealing. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, Denise. It will definately be on my table again.

I loved this, and my son who would rather die than eat cabbage said it was good too. I used the chive cream cheese and also added garlic, and LOTS of salt and pepper, I like the idea of adding cheese only next time I am going to try maybe mozzarella. This was very tasty and different and I like the fact that it is such a nice big pie with very little effort. I really like this recipe. Thanks!

WOW! how could something so easy to make taste soooo good? The only things I added to this recipe were fresh garlic, minced banana peppers and sharp cheddar cheese. It was a huge hit and everyone wanted the recipe.
