I'm half Hungarian, and have been eating these noodles since I was a baby, but Sharon's idea to add the sausages into the dish turned it into something totally different. It was always a side dish for me (my father would add sugar to it and turn it into a sweet snack), but the sausages make this a great comfort food main dish. I used local veggie sausages from Tivall. The only change I made to the recipe was to add a healthy dose of paprika, what's Hungarian noodles without some good Szeged paprika?

We tried this recipe for dinner last night and thought it was delicious! I used Field Roast Italian Sausages (vegetarian), which are my favorite, and which really added to the dish. My egg noodles were not wide, but I didn't think it mattered and it turned out I did not have any poppy seeds. I used a combination of sweet and hot paprika. I liked the little bit of kick that the hot paprika lent. Leftovers were also really good for lunch today. Thanks! Made for March 2013 Veggie Swap.

My BF made this for dinner with Morningstar Farms veggie sausage links. He is a fan of all Hungarian cuisine and this satisfied both of us. In fact, he at some of the leftovers after dinner which he hardly ever does! We added poppy seeds which gave it some crunch. He added paprika too. The sweet onion and cabbage went terrifically together. Thanks as always Sharon!
