This dish tasted wonderful and was easy to make and healthy all at the same time. We rushed right out and bought another cabbage. Can't wait to make it again!

Easy to make and my whole family loved it. Definitely will make again. I used turkey sausage and Rotel tomatoes. I also added two cloves of minced garlic. Great recipe!
