Old Fashioned Cabbage and Noodles with Keilbasa

Susan Bickta


Cabbage and noodles is one of my all time favorite comfort foods. The addition of keilbasa (or smoked sausage) makes this a meal. Warning: once you start eating it ... it's hard to stop!!

1/2 lb
bacon, cut into bite size pieces
13.5 ounce package smoked keilbasa, thinly sliced
1 medium
onion, chopped
1 medium
medium head cabbage, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 c
chicken broth
12 ounce package broad egg noodles, cooked as directed
