Try Something New

When I was a teenager and my Grammy was visiting us, she declared she was going to make me a new side dish for supper. My parents had actually had it before during a visit to PA that I wasn't there for. When she told me what it was I must have gotten a look of disgust on my face b/c I remember my dad saying "Now don't turn your nose up until you try it. It's very very good". I don't know why I would have done that b/c I was never one not to try new things. But being a teenager, I'm sure I was in a mood and it had nothing to do w/ the meal. :-) I should have trusted the fact that I would love it b/c most things Grammy makes are fantastic and crowd pleasers. Well, that "new" side dish is now one I make for my family on a regular basis and everyone I have shared the recipe w/ in the past agrees it's delicious!

Fried Cabbage and Noodles

1 small head of cabbage- chopped
1 lb egg noodles- medium or wide
Olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook egg noodles according to package directions until just al dente and have just a bit of a bite to them. Drain.

Meanwhile in a large skillet ( I use my electric one) saute cabbage in vegetable oil until tender and brown on the edges, about 10 minutes. Season w/ salt and pepper to taste.

When noodles are drained, add to skillet. Add a little more oil if necessary. Saute w/ cabbage until noodles are finished cooking and flavors are mixed, about 8 minutes. Taste for salt and pepper and adjust accordingly.

I LOVE fried cabbage and noodles. I let the noodles and cabbage get brown spots on it. Tastes great w/ lots of black pepper!

Try crumbling some bacon bits into this. This is how we serve it in my family. It gives it a nice flavor!
