Turkey Cabbage Rolls

Short cut cabbage rolls without the rice.



  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (175 °C). Brown turkey and onion on stove top.
  2. While turkey is cooking, boil a medium size pot of water. When water reaches a boil, drop the head of cabbage into water and let boil about 4 minutes. Remove the cabbage from the water and carefully peel off 6 leaves without ripping them. Drain on paper towels.
  3. Once turkey is cooked through, add two cups of your favorite spaghetti/marinara sauce, sugar free if available. Simmer for another 15 minutes.
  4. While turkey is simmering, prepare a baking pan with cooking spray and line it with leftover cabbage leaves.
  5. Turn heat off on turkey mixture and add 3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese. Scoop the mixture into the six cabbage leaves, rolling the leaves like a burrito.
  6. Place stuffed cabbage leaves, seam side down, in prepared baking dish, cover with remaining sauce and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  7. Cover and bake at 350 °F for 45 minutes. Remove lid and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  8. Note: boiling the cabbage leaves is the key to keeping them intact.

Very good, but look at the sodium and cholestrol! Only once in a while meal.

Why too much fat content for my diabetic diet; can't/won't try it as written. Might give it a try without cheese or with fat-free cheese and a lower carb sauce.
