Ground Meat and Cabbage Casserole
1 to 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef or ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 16-ounce bag shredded cabbage with carrots
1 teaspoon salt, divided
Pepper to taste
16 to 20 ounces jarred, tomato-based spaghetti sauce (any flavor)
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon chives, chopped (optional)
1/2 to 1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
Sauté the onion and garlic in butter until soft, but not brown in a medium-sized skillet.
Add the ground beef or turkey, ½ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste.
Cook, breaking up the meat until the meat loses its pink color. Drain.
In a 2-quart buttered casserole or baking dish, half of the cabbage.
Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste.
Add the meat mixture, pressing down slightly. Add the remaining cabbage.
Mix together the spaghetti sauce, the Worcestershire sauce and chives.
Pour the sauce over the top of the casserole. Cover.
Bake at 350ºF for approximately 1 hour or until the cabbage is soft and
the meat is cooked through. Add the cheese on top. Bake, uncovered,
for an additional 5 to 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve at once.
Serves: 4 to 6.
