I put my cabbage in the freezer and take it out the night before I make them, this saves a lot of time and moisture in the kitchen.

This recipe is NOT quick & easy. It IS very bland, however. I prepared it exactly according to recipe. It's healthy and filling, but very very boring. I won't be making this one again. Sorry.

I read other home cooks' reviews and decided to add cumin, oregano and salt in the filling. As for the sauce, I used Italian stewed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes. Added 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and fresh thyme. The flavor was pretty good. However, this recipe takes time and effort. I wouldn't say that the result was all worth it.
