When I was a kid, I loved veggies and now that I’m older, I love them even more.  Right near the top of my list is cabbage!

Not only does it taste great either raw or cooked, it’s so good for you!  Typically we use it in cabbage rolls or cabbage roll soup but of course it’s great in a nice crunchy coleslaw too!

Cabbage and Noodles (aka Haluskie) is an old Polish dish and it’s one of my favorites from my Grandmother!  Different areas have slightly different versions, Slovak Halusky is more of a potato dumpling while other areas enjoy it as cabbage and noodles.

Regardless of what you call this dish, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the sweet flavors of cabbage and a great way to get a meal on the table on a busy weeknight!

Don’t let the simplicity of this recipe deter you from giving it a try, ingredients don’t have to be fancy to taste amazing!

When seasoning this dish, be generous  with the salt & pepper, it makes this extra good!  I typically use egg noodles in this dish, I love the light fluffy texture and you can use any type of sausage. If you don’t like sausage, feel free to crisp up some bacon (and sub in some of the bacon grease in place of the butter) or skip the meat altogether.

Recipe Rating


  1. Absolutely delicious. I used a Cajun sausage and added some red pepper flakes because we like everything spicy! It was easy and quick to make.4 stars

  2. I love cabbage so I knew I was gonna l love this! Made my husband cook it for me since I was working late and it did not disappoint! Thanks for the great, easy, cheap recipe! 5 stars!5 stars

    1. I haven’t tried serving this dish cold Diane. If you try it I would love to hear how it turns out!

  3. I’m not sure whether I’d make this again. It’s simple to make and my husband thought it was great. The fried sausage in it was my favorite and that is unusual for me as I love vegetables.
    I found it to be rather bland.4 stars

  4. Great recipie! For people like me who accidentally add the noodles with the cabbage it still turns out great!

  5. My Grandmother grew up in the depression. The recipe brought back memories because it sounded like something she would cook.

  6. I just made this dish and it’s very good. A nice dinner of something different and easy to make. I didn’t have frozen peas on hand which would have been so good so I substituted corn which did work. Your recipes are so good and I’ve learned a lot trying dishes I’ve never made before. If they freeze well that’s another plus when I’m cooking for one or having something on hand in the freezer to share when my family comes to visit or send some up to my other family that lives here.5 stars

  7. This is one of my regular favorites ! I add in a can of diced tomatoes for that little something extra.

  8. My 14 year old son thought this was great! He’s right! And, he usually will eat few, if any, vegetables. He ate this and went back for more!5 stars

  9. Love this recipe, have enjoyed it many times and it’s always a comforting crowd pleaser in the winter months!5 stars

  10. Great recipe. I like my noodles browned so after I boiled them in a separate pan I added butter and browned the noodles with a couple pinches of Spanish paprika. My husband doesn’t like peas so instead to add a green vegetable I cut up some broccoli and microwaved it for a minute and then put in with the noodles when I was browning them. Threw that in the mix and loved it. I liked browning the sausage vs boiling it in OJ.

  11. Made this over the weekend for my family and it was great! Everyone loved it! This will become one of our fall recipes.

  12. I made this for dinner tonight and it was a big hit. I used bacon grease instead of oil, a cut up bell pepper instead of peas ( I can’t have peas) and three cloves of garlic instead of one. It was just delicious.5 stars
