I like these numbers! On recipe4all.com. Per Serving: Calories: 210 - great dish! Updated: 03/18/2007 to say that perhaps the cabbage needs a little longer to cook.

This was very good.I added some feta cheese to the orzo mix and extra dill. The cabbage rolls needed a longer cooking time...more like 1 1/2 hours.Sauce was excellent poured over rolls. While it seemed to take a while to make I really enjoyed the result. A nice lighter alternative to regular cabbage rolls. Thank you for posting. I will make again. Catherine
