    Geema's Note:

    My husband ate a noodle and cabbage dish as a child that was called "krautfrekels", fixed for him by his German grandmother. Since there wasn't a recipe for this dish in the family, I made up this one, which he loves just as much. The original dish didn't have any tomato element, but my husband used to douse it with lots of ketchup. I use spaghetti sauce instead. This is a fast and easy recipe, low in fat, and delicious. We eat it as a vegetarian main dish with some cooked carrots, or corn. It's also excellent as a side dish with roasts or chops.

      Geema, I just have to send in another review. I LOVE THIS DISH! I make it every other week (at least) and eat it for breakfast or lunch ALL the time! I use Paul Newman's marinara sauce, with Amish noodles (dried) and it is simply delicious! Thank you again for creating this for your lucky husband! (and for lucky me!)

      We usually love cabbage too but this was disgusting. We ended up throwing it away. YUCK! Geema, just noticed-do you usually rate your own recipes?
