A simple casserole to put together. The main ingredients are: ground beef, shredded cabbage, onion, garlic, tomato sauce, crushed red pepper flakes, salt & pepper, plus grated parmesan cheese. (You can substitute seasoned ground pork sausage for the ground beef, and traditional-style spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce.)

  1. In a skillet, brown the ground beef; drain off the excess grease.
  2. Add beef back to the skillet, then add the onion, garlic, salt & pepper, and the red pepper flakes.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, stir and heat the tomato/beef mixture, over low heat.
  4. At this point, set the oven temp to 350 degrees.
  5. Spray the inside of a 2-1/2 quart casserole baking dish, with a no-stick cooking spray.
  6. Add 2 cups of the shredded cabbage to the casserole baking dish.
  7. Add half of the tomato/beef mixture, over the shredded cabbage.
  8. Repeat layer of cabbage and tomato/beef mixture.
  9. Sprinkle casserole with the parmesan cheese.
  10. Cover, and bake in oven for 45 minutes.
  11. Note: I have made this dish substituting seasoned ground pork sausage for the ground beef, and also substituting traditional-style spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce, which also made for a delicious tasting casserole. The seasoned pork sausage I used, already had salt, coarse cracked pepper, dried sage, and fresh garlic added to it. All was mixed in a meat grinder.
