Haluski a.k.a. "Cabbage and Noodles"
1 lb. of noodles
1/2 to 3/4 cups of vegan margarine (Earth Balance! Woo!)
salt & pepper
This is a very simple version of an Eastern European dish that is also very popular around Pittsburgh. My family simply called it "Cabbage & Noodles" most of the time for obvious reasons.
Cut cabbage in half and cut out the core. Cut each half into long, thin-ish strips.
Put cabbage strips in a large pot along with the margarine over medium heat. Use 1/2 to 3/4 cups margarine (1 to 1 1/2 sticks) depending on how big your cabbage is. Let the cabbage and margarine simmer until cabbage is wilted and yellow.
While cabbage is simmering, boil your pound of noodles (I like using colored rotini, but just about any noodle will do.)
When both cabbage and noodles are done, drain the noodles and mix them with the cabbage. Stir.
Add as much salt and pepper as you desire.
This is obviously not the healthiest dish, but if you're from the "Pixburgh" area, it's a great, easy comfort food. It's also easy to add other ingredients...so have fun with it!
