OK so I made this. Everytime I've tried "easy" cabbage roll recipes from Recipezaar, they always taste good but it seems there is always too much rice. I always follow the recipes exact. This time I cut the rice to 4 cups instead of 6. Then ater mixing the ingredients it looked like it needed more meat. I had used one of those 1lb tube ground round so I fried up another 1 pound and added that. It looked great like just enough rice to meat ratio. The recipe said 3 cans tomato soup and it's equivalent of water. I assumed this meant 3 cans water. After 50 min baking and removing the foil, the cabbage was about 95% tender. The taste was there but the casserole came out too soupy. Maybe the missing rice caused it to be thin but you'd think that cooked rice wouldn't absorb anymore liquid anyway. I'd do this again cause it WAS easier than real cabbage rolls but I'd use the adjusted amounts of meat and rice and only use 1.5 cans water instead of 3. Hope this helps anyone who likes more meat than rice in thier "unrolled" cabbage rolls.

I would not recommend this recipe for the following reason: the ingredients do not fit in a 9 x 13 baking pan; the cabbage did not all soften even after baking for over an hour; and the flavor was bland.

This is sooo good! I love cabbage rolls, but hate spending the day making them and this is just as good and so much easier. I'll be making this one again and again!
