When I was a kid, I loved veggies and now that I’m older, I love them even more.  Right near the top of my list is cabbage!

Not only does it taste great either raw or cooked, it’s so good for you!  Typically we use it in cabbage rolls or cabbage roll soup but of course it’s great in a nice crunchy coleslaw too!

Cabbage and Noodles (aka Haluskie) is an old Polish dish and it’s one of my favorites from my Grandmother!  Different areas have slightly different versions, Slovak Halusky is more of a potato dumpling while other areas enjoy it as cabbage and noodles.

Regardless of what you call this dish, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sweet flavors of cabbage and a great way to get a meal on the table on a busy weeknight!

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe deter you from giving it a try, ingredients don’t have to be fancy to taste amazing!

When seasoning this dish, be generous  with the salt & pepper, it makes this extra good!  I typically use egg noodles in this dish, I love the light fluffy texture and you can use any type of sausage. If you don’t like sausage, feel free to crisp up some bacon (and sub in some of the bacon grease in place of the butter) or skip the meat altogether.

  1. I have made this several times, and it is wonderful. I like peas, but not in this dish, so that is the only thing I omit. Once in awhile I dice up 2 or 3 potatoes and cook them in with the noodles, and add both into the mix. Just for a little change.5 stars

  2. I tried the cabbage and noodle recipe with some variations. I used our favorite brats, added chicken broth for liquid to steam cabbage and 50/50 to cook noodles. I also added soy sauce to the pan for cooking pan before adding cabbage. I left out the peas because my husband has to limit his green vegetables, but he loved it! He is very picky. I am making it again this week and hope it goes across as well. I am sort of a dump cook and have to often make changes to suit household tastes. Thank you for a combination I never would have thought of.5 stars

  3. Loved this!!!! So simple and delicious. I used red cabbage which is the only thing I did different for the recipe!5 stars

  4. I love this recipe!!! I do make a few adjustments, I also add mushrooms; use Napa cabbage and add some soy(light) and some teriyaki sauce. I do not add garlic but use garlic powder. Now that’s amazing!!!

  5. Absolutely delicious!!! Made it exactly as written and would not change a single thing. Husband loved it, too. Will put it on our regular rotation. Thank you for this recipe!5 stars

  6. Fantastic recipe! Definitely will make again. Made exactly as written. Very filling dish. Thank you for posting 5 stars

  7. This was really delicious! Followed the recipe exactly, just didn’t have the peas, but I will for next time! Absolutely making this again!5 stars

  8. I have made this wonderful recipe many times. We love it. I would like to make it ahead and reheat before serving. Can it be reheated in the oven? Thank you for all your great recipes.

    1. It is best served immediately but it does reheat well. Just pop back into the oven until heated through.

      1. I would preheat the oven to 350°F and tent the casserole with foil to help prevent it from drying out and then cook until heated through.

    1. Hi Jeanette, we haven’t tried this recipe in the Instant Pot yet but it would definitely be possible! If you attempt it before us, we would love to hear the adjustments you make to it for the IP!

  9. This is one of my regular favorites. When I add in the noodles and peas, I also add a small can of diced tomatoes (with juice).5 stars

    1. When I read your post, I realized what was missing for me: tomatoes! LOL I’m going to put six fresh ones in the blender! Thanks for your post! In fact, I’m going to make half with tomatoes and half without — and see which one I like better. :-) Thanks again!5 stars

  10. I made a delicious twist on this recipe and loved it. No cabbage on hand, so I substituted chopped fresh swiss chard from my garden. Also added red bell peppers and celery to the onion mixture. I loved it and could hardly stop refilling my bowl!! I will definitely make this again. In fact, I love all your recipes!

  11. Fixed this recipe this week, super easy and very delicious! Thank you for sharing, it will be a regular dish in our recipe rotation!!5 stars

  12. 1 clove of garlic
