This is very similar to Hungarian Galushka which my mother made - although 1 cup of butter is overkill! I reduced it to 1/4 to 1/2 cup and add a little chicken broth if it needs to be more moist. Try using wide egg noodles instead of the farfalle, a freshly ground coarse black pepper. Combine cabbage and noodles in the pan and cook together for a few minutes to blend flavors. This was a frequent, Friday-night, vegetarian supper. Thanks for the memories! Read More

We tried this and liked it but everyone agreed it needed something more. Think we will try it with kelbasa sausage next time. Read More

This is an old slovak recipe called 'Haluski' Grandma passed down the love of it. It is not spicy, most slovak food is not, but it is full of flavor. We 'cheat' and add sliced polish sausage to it to make a whole meal, YUM Read More

I loved this dish! I made a few changes however. Being Italian American I grew up having a bowl of pasta with butter and a little salt & pepper so I am always looking for pasta dishes. I used it as the recipe suggested but used whole wheat pasta shells and only 1/2 of a 13 oz package. I used minced onion and garlic salt instead of the garlic and onion and added a little salt & pepper. Also I like my cabbage crisp tender so cooking for only 7 minutes was enough for me. The butter paired really well with the pasta and cabbage. I also love parmesean cheese with pasta and added a little to my dish before serving. Cheese is a little salty so you might want to use very little salt in the cabbage. Also this is a quick dish I had it ready in 35 minutes and served it with nothing else but some hot pull apart rolls.....Delicious! Read More

Great recipe. I fried up a few slices of bacon and let them rest while I prepared the rest of the recipe. When done I put the bacon on top with a dallop of sour cream. I halved the butter on the advice of other reviewers. I would add more garlic next time because it seemed a little bland to me. But I think this recipe is great because you can really make it your own. Thanks! Read More

Great basic recipe. I have made this for years (Polish you know!!) After 40 years I think I have thought of most every variation. They are all good with this dish. I usually make mine in a skillet then add noodles at the end with a half cup of sour cream. It is just a nice touch tastes great! Read More

My family has this at least 3 times a month. To change the flavor a bit...add a splash of soy sauce. MMMM Read More

My family loves this one but instead of butter I substitute 1 pound of bacon and cook the rest of this in the bacon fat. The bacon makes it a meal. Read More
