Cabbage Noodles

cabbage noodles

In my family “cabbage noodles” was the name we gave to an archetypically European combination of spicy savory savoy cabbage and small pieces of pasta. 

If the phrase “cabbage noodles” doesn’t ring a bell, know that this dish is called káposztás tészta, in Hungarian and kraut lokshn, or kraut pletzlach in Yiddish.
