    Delicious! I modified it a bit, using ground turkey breast (99% fat free), Low-Sodium V8 (10 oz) instead of tomato soup, and Hunt's No-Salt Added tomatoes. That gets it to about 175 calories and under 100 sodium per serving! - 10/23/12

    OMG I love cabbage rolls and this WAS WAY easier to make and AMAZING!I simmered mine for about 45 min. on medium heat! Added a whole tomato, didn't have diced in can! Used half can of mushroom spaghetti sauce cuz i didn't have tomato soup! Added more S & P! Will make a million more times! TY! =) - 2/17/10

    This is a favorite in our house! We make it often. So much easier than wrapping the meat in the cabbage leaves! Thanks for sharing! - 7/24/10

    WOW WOW WOW.... even my horribly picky 4 year old ate this! I cooked it in the slow cooker and it was great to just put everything in the crock pot and eat 6 hrs later! Just as good as the stuffed variety! - 5/6/10
