Spicy Cajun Cabbage and Noodles

This recipe was a fortunate "accident" I had with leftover cabbage a few years ago but it is so good I find myself craving it. I'm the only one in my family that likes cabbage so I get to eat all of it by myself:)Hope you like it. The seasonings are approximations. This is supposed to be sweet.

This is pretty good stuff for an "accident"! And you only have to get one pot dirty - my kind of meal some days. I used polish kielbasa for the sausage so didn't even have to cook that first. Other than that, I made the recipe as posted except to put in only one tablespoon of sugar - I am not a sweets fan - and that made the seasonings just right for me. My husband took a second helping and I took the rest for lunch - very good the next day! We had this with garlic bread - great comfort food! Thanks, Janet!
