Seperate cabbage leaves (enough for 20 packets), remove thick center and put them in the freezer to wilt.

Meanwhile combine wine, olive oil, peppers, zucchini, 1/2 of the garlic, can of tomatoes, and pasta sauce into a heavy dutch oven and simmer.

Add the remaining ingrediants, except the cabbage into a food processor using chopping blade to reduce size of the pieces of vegetables and chick peas. Use the pulse speed.
for a minute or two.

Remove the cabbage leaves from the freeser.
Divide the vegetable /meat mixture into 20 portions and fill the cabbage leaves. Do not over fill, leave enough room to roll the leaves.

Cover the bottom of the cooking pot with Zucchini sauce. Place the cabbage rolls into the pot layering them as needed. Pour remaining sauce over the roll. Cook on top of the stove, simmering until the cabbage is tender.

We served these rolls to family and friends after a day of roofing. Everyone raved. Our 3 yr. old grandson gobbled them up.
