Halushki - Cabbage and Noodles

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Michael Wodnicki

A simple, yet hearty eastern European dish that is a family favorite. The cheese mixture is indescribable. This dish can be prepared a day or two in advance, then baked just before serving. It also doubles or triples very well for holiday feasts or large parties.

Really good recipe...and you can add more vegetables to your taste...we added kale to the cabbage and onion. I just add a little dill as my mom used to...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil noodles, according to package instructions, until al dente. Set aside in large mixing bowl.
  2. Dice onion. Saute in 1/3 stick of butter until they start to get a little color, then set aside.
  3. Remove stem and chop cabbage into bite-sized pieces (about 3/4 inch). Saute in 2/3 stick of butter until tender and have a little color. Add to noodles.
  4. Blend cottage cheese, sour cream, and egg. Add sautéed onions and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add cheese mixture to noodles and cabbage and mix well. Pour into a glass 9 x 13 baking dish lightly coated with non-stick spray.
  6. Bake covered at 350°F for 30 minutes or until heated through. Uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes to crisp edges and top layer. Serve hot.
  7. DO NOT sauté the onions and cabbage together. The onions will burn before the cabbage is done. This also helps to better distribute the butter throughout the dish.
