How easy and delicious this recipe is! I used mild Italian sausages and I sauted the sausage in the dutch oven for a few minutes before adding the cabbage. I did chop the cabbage up a bit, and I put some chunks of carrot in for good measure. Very good, old fashioned comfort food! I will make this again! Thanks Lorac.

Lorac! So glad you un-buried this recipe. This is the kind of old-country cooking that reminds me of my Grandma. So easy to throw everything into a casserole dish, cover & forget it! I NEED recipes like this some days! Used mild Italian sausage because that's what I had on hand. The sausage flavored the cabbage nicely. All I had to do was tuck a couple of potatoes into the oven to serve with sour cream and dinner was served! Thanks!
