There was a church potluck a couple of weeks ago, and I needed to come up with something international (world communion sunday), easy, and that would feed many many people.


1 head of green cabbage (nothing fancy here. plain green cabbage) cut into thin strips
1 large yellow onion - cut in a thick jullienne (if there is such a thing)
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 lb bag of wide egg noodles
salt and pepper to taste

In your second largest pot (I say second largest because my largest pot is to boil the noodles in. if you have two really big pots, then bully for you. I use a non-stick 5qt pot) melt butter over medium heat - make sure not to burn it! Once it's melted, add the onion and sprinkle some salt over them. Once the onions get transluscent, add the cabbage. It will look like it won't all fit, but it will! the cabbage will cook down. Stir it all together and continue to cook until the cabbage becomes very soft.

Cook the noodles according to the instructions. Drain and add to cabbage mix (actually, I had to add the noodles back into the large pot, and then add the cabbage mix to that).

Salt and pepper to taste. Serve with a blob of sour cream. Mmmmmmmm! Good on a cold rainy day.
