I am amazed at how flavorful and tangy this came out. I doubled the mushrooms, added 1/4 C chopped L, (canned), chilies, (will add 1/2 C next time), substituted almost 1/2 can of ginger ale for cola, 1/2 C white sugar (no cola or brown sugar on hand). Wonderful flavor! Had no herbed butter, so added oregano, garlic powder, tad of garlic salt & pepper in pan and melted with butter. 1/4 of a cabbage wasn't nearly enough for a serving of pasta for 4. I added more and would actually suggest 1/4 of a small cabbage per serving of spaghetti, so, a full, small head to serve 4-6 people. (If you like cabbage, this is the way to go). Next day I took enough shredded chicken and heated in pan with BBQ sauce and served on a lightly buttered, lightly toasted bun...YUM! So versitile & so easy!! Adding as a regular dish! TY for this recipe!

Made this without the cabbage pasta for a house party it was well received*. I did* use changes from previous review. Some guests thought it was pork. Served it on burger buns. Great for groups. Thanks.

This was pretty good although I made quite a few modifications to it before I even started as I knew it would be too sweet as written. I cut the brown sugar down to 1/2 cup and omitted the cola completely - I substituted water instead. I used about seven cloves of crushed garlic instead of minced. I ended up with a lovely, tangy recipe that I will definitely make again. Thanks for posting!
