This recipe comes from my mom. We always enjoyed cabbage rolls in our house, but because it was so time consuming, she had to come up with a quick casserole version. This casserole recipe is easy and very inexpensive.

Like my mom, I use ground pork, but you can substitute for ground beef if you prefer. I truly love casserole dishes, you assemble all the ingredients in one dish, place it in the oven and voila!

This ground pork and cabbage casserole reminds me so much of my childhood. The smell of the cooking cabbage in tomato sauce brings back memories of dinner times with my family. How amazing is it that certain smells bring back vivid memories with so much intensity, that it’s like I am there reliving these moments.
