It's so good! Quite comforting and very stick to your ribs hearty.

Haluski is the Polish name for this. I add my cabbage in two steps so that some of it wilts down but the rest keeps a crisper bite.

    I added 1/2 cup of chicken stock to the last simmer stage. It brings all of the flavors together and keep the kielbasa from drying out. I’ve also been known to substitute Italian sausage for the Kielbasa. Delish!

  2. This was a dish my mother made when I was young (many decades ago) and I made for my kids. They loved the noodles and kielbasa. They tried to get the cabbage off the noodles but eventually gave up and just ate it as fast as they could. We all loved it. I went from chopping all that cabbage, to buying a bag of coleslaw mix. The carrots and purple cabbage were a great addition in color to the dish and made it even faster to pull together after work when we were all so hungry. My fiance hates cooked carrots, but like the kids, it is too much trouble to try to get them off the noodles so he just gobbles it down! Great to see the recipe published, thank you!

  3. Mary we absolutely LOVED this dish! I made a pan of cornbread to go with it. Absolutely delicious! In my bowl, I added a few drops of red wine vinegar and it just amped it up in flavor — yum!

    I also add some celery, sweet peppers and carrots to mine. And I use bowtie pasta instead of noodles. It’s so yummy!

  5. Have made this dish my entire life…never used meat nor an excess of onion.the sweetness of the cabbage was enough, but did sprinkle q little caraway seed in it. It was a favorite of my grandmother who cooked for a large family. I still use this recipe today

  6. I added crushed bacon bits to mine and really added another layer although I’m sure it would be fine without it. Thank you for the recipe.

    I made this recipe with diced ham instead of kielbasa and no peas. But other than that exact same. Oh my God!!! So delicious. Reminds me of my mom making it growing up!
