This is a nice twist on buttered noodles and easy to prepare. Made as directed, we felt it could be tweeked with some sauteed onions, and best served with corned beef. Overall, we liked this recipe. Thanks for sharing this unique dish.

We LOVE cabbage & noodles! I always try an unreviewed recipe when I make it. How something so simple can be so delicious & comforting amazes me. This is a perfect recipe. I used 1 big head of cabbage chopped & a 12oz bag of noodles. We finished it. Thank you & happy cooking!
