A very nice way to eat mashed potatoes and cabbage! A good recipe for St. Pattie's Day.

We all loved this! The cabbage added extra texture and some flavor to mashed potatoes. I used leftovers the next day to top Rachel Ray's 30 minute Shepherds Pie. Great combo!

Yum! I've made this twice. The first time I made it for St. Patrick's Day, and I followed the recipe as directed. It was delicious. The second time, I made it healthier(because I want to make this more frequently): I cooked the cabbage in olive oil with just a bit of butter added. I also used less butter, and replaced the cream with 2% milk(I just poured a little in), in the mashed potatoes. My sister and I are vegetarians, but my son is not. We all enjoy this!
