Cabbage Bundles in Paprika Cream Sauce

gaynel mohler


This is actually a different type of cabbage roll. Some tomatoe sauce, but the sauce over them is creamy. It is inexpensive and the ingredients are staples in my house, as they are probably in yours. If you like cabbage, then this is your new dish to try.
