Frugal Gourmet's Polish Noodles and Cabbage

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 20 mins

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. Made and reviewed for The Secret Ingredient tag game.

This is some mighty good comfort food. I used some local Kielbasa, and made it just like you directed. Please, do not omit the caraway. It is perfect in this cabbage dish. The sour cream was good. Thanks, MizLaudee for sharing your recipe. A real keeper!
