We loved this dish! Heeding the warning that it could be too dry posted by another, I used a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes and a small 7 oz can of tomato paste with 2 T of sugar in place of the tomato sauce. I also used some leftover cooked rice I had in the fridge which cut down on the stovetop time. It was aromatic and absolutely delicious. Will definitely make this one again.

Followed the recipe exactly, baking half in a 8*8 baking pan and the rest I am trying in the freezer to see how it holds up.
New favorite recipe in my house! Will make again for sure.
Thanks for the great simple recipe!

*** I have tried the frozen casserole and it was fantastic, thaw overnight and bake as directed (covered)

We love cabbage rolls but sometimes I don't want to go thru all the work, so this recipe is a wonderful find. Thank you.
