Cabbage Roll Casserole

My mom makes the best cabbage rolls, and because she’s making them for her loved ones, she doesn’t mind the time that it takes to make them. I enjoy her cabbage rolls alot, but my method for dinner is usually to make the process go as quickly as possible, especially when I’m short on time. This recipe gives you the hearty taste of cabbage rolls, but without so much work.

In a separate pan, brown your ground meat, drain, then add rice, soup, pasta sauce and water, and stir together (No need to cook further, because it will cook in the oven).  I usually brown my meat in bulk ahead of time, and freeze it so it’s ready for any recipes, so I just mixed my ingredients up in a bowl.

  1. In a greased 9×13 baking dish, spread out 1/3 of cabbage.

  3. Repeat, and then top with the rest of the cabbage.
