Ranch Recipes for Smoked Kielbasa or Sausage

Ranch Recipes:  Cabbage/Kielbasa/Noodle Dish

This recipe comes to us from a customer, Melissa Loizes, who raved about our smoked kielbasa.  Thank you, Melissa!

1/2 of small head of cabbage (Napa is yum)
1/2 bag of egg noodles, any variety
1/2 to 1 pound of smoked kielbasa or smoked sausage, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 of sweet onion, chopped
lots of butter or olive oil
lots of salt and pepper
bit of garlic if desired

Chop the cabbage and boil it for about 12 minutes. Remove and drain it but keep the water; reuse it to boil the noodles! While noodles boil, cook onions and garlic in oil in a big sautĂ© pan until becoming clear, then add kielbasa and cook it, too. When noodles are just cooked, drain them, then combine all this (onion/kielbasa, noodles, drained cabbage) in a big bowl and mix well, adding salt, pepper, and butter liberally to taste. 

I highly recommend enjoying this with a big dollop of full-fat cottage cheese atop or on the side. YUM.
