Butter Garlic Cabbage and Kluski Noodles

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Buttery, garlicky cabbage and noodles! I have found this to work with other vegetables as well. Instead of cabbage, use spinach, collards, or any other leafy vegetable that wilts well. What doesn't taste good with garlic and butter?"

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Stir in kluski noodles and return to a boil. Cook kluski noodles uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender but still slightly firm, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain well. Return to pot and stir in 3 tablespoons butter until butter has melted and coated the noodles. Set noodles aside.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pot over medium heat; cook and stir sweet onion in butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Thoroughly mix in crushed red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Stir cabbage and water into onion mixture until well combined. Cover and cook, stirring often, until cabbage is tender and reduced in volume by about half, 15 to 20 minutes. There should be a small amount of liquid left in pot.
  4. Gently stir the buttered kluski noodles into the cabbage mixture until well combined. For a more buttery flavor, stir in 3 more tablespoons butter if desired; season to taste with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.

Never met an Eastern European cabbage and noodle dish that I didn't like. This is excellent the way it's presented, but I suggest that you reserve some of the noodle cooking water to add instea...

I used a 1/2 cup white wine instead of water. We liked this dish very much!

Good recipe for cabbage and noodles. I never had this growing up, and my first time trying it was at a church picnic. The thickness of Kluski noodles is the key to it really tasting good, I wa...
