Haluski a.k.a. "Cabbage and Noodles"

What you need: 

1 cabbage
1 lb. of noodles
1/2 to 3/4 cups of vegan margarine (Earth Balance! Woo!)
salt & pepper

What you do: 

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!

I come from a Polish family and we made this growing up! We traditionally used egg noodles and added Polish sausage and caraway seed. The caraway seed really makes the dish do it's Polka dance!

I love pasta and I love cabbage even more but I was skeptical about putting the two together...I LOVE it though! Thank you!  :)>>>

This was really yummy! 

I used Napa cabbage because it was what I had on hand and I sliced in medallions of leek. It was super easy to make and delicious.

I’m from Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada and Haluski is one of my favorite Slovak comfort foods.  It’s really, really, delicious over homemade noodles, with a pinch of caraway seeds added when your cooking the cabbage.  Yummy!
