Deconstructed Cabbage Roll





I have the most beautiful cabbage this year in my garden. I don’t know if it’s because of the cooler spring we’ve had or the fact that I really kinda left it alone after my fall tomatoes died – 😂 whatever the reason, I needed to use it for something amazing. My husband detests cabbage unless it’s fried in an egg roll; so, I shared this one with my mother in law, who is in an assisted living facility, and myself. I’m 1/2 Polish, so I grew up on cabbage rolls – it was at least a monthly meal. I hope you enjoy this. It’s fast so you can do this on a weeknight!
