Frugal Gourmet's Polish Noodles and Cabbage

Total Time

This recipe is from "The Frugal Gourmet on Our Immigrant Ancestors" cookbook. It's a great Polish comfort food, easy to mix and serve, and it's easy on the pocketbook. I like to add sliced Kielbasa to mix when done and serve with a tossed salad and good hard-crust bread.

This was delish! I had to buy caraway seed, as it isn't something I normally use, and I'm glad I did. A definite keeper.

I have had this before but without the caraway seed and sour cream. Enjoyed the sour cream but the caraway seed had a strong flavor that didnt work well for me. For folks that arent sure if they like caraway seed start with !/2 teaspoon or less and add more if needed. Nice comfort food and inexpensive! Thank you Laudee for posting this recipe.

When my BIL asked for noodles and cabbage, this is the one I selected. He says "Thumbs up!". The next time he asked for soul food, this is what he will get.
