I too modified this recipe and actually got an idea or two from another allrecipe entry "Cabbage Jambalaya." Along with the onion and meat, I added two chopped garlic cloves. I used one can of tomato soup and 1 can of tomato sauce that had the Italian spices in it. In addition, I put in about 1/2 teaspoon each of Italian seasons, basil and oregano. I also added one cup of minute rice when I added in the tomatoes. With these changes we had a most excellent meal--both my husband and daughter went back for seconds!


My husband loved this recipe, he called it "a definite keeper". Of course the kids wouldn't go near it, but what kid screams for cabbage??? I added salt, pepper, thyme and a bayleaf. Without the addition of these spices, I think it would have been a little bland. Served it over rice, and it was excellent!! Even better the next day. And much easier than rolling all that cabbage!!


This turned out quite well. I did change a few things. I took heed of others advice....I added 1 can of tomato sauce, omitted 1 can of soup. I added seasoning..it needed it, I think.(Basil, oregano, garlic). I also did NOT add the sour cream. I didn't think it needed it. I also added one small can of tomato paste. My kids, both of whom had never eaten cabbage before, said they loved it. So, that is a good sign!!! I will make this again. The pot was huge...I had enough for leftovers!!!! Wooooohooooooo!!
