Stuffed Cabbage with an Italian Twist

Stuffed Cabbage with an Italian Twist

Stuffed cabbage is not typically a dish you hear about in Italian cuisine... Polish, German, Russian yes. No I am not the first to put an Italian twist on it, the great Lidia has her own version as well! Cabbage is a great vessel because it is super pliable when boiled, they really make for a healthy rolling vessel. When it came to the filling I thought of an Italian meat lasagna... so I went with ground chicken, ricotta, grated pecorino and lots of fresh basil! The filling is wrapped up in tender cabbage then baked in sauce and topped with shredded mozzarella. I served mine with some sautéed zucchini and squash... a simple bowl of mixed greens would pair well.

This recipe contains cabbage, chicken (ground), cheese (ricotta), bread crumbs (whole wheat), eggs, cheese (pecorino), basil, garlic powder, cheese (mozzarella, shredded), tomato sauce
