My kids are very finicky when it comes to cabbage (one of my favorites) so I only do half the head. I would love more in it, so use the whole thing if you want to. I miss my grandma's cabbage rolls. but that's a lot of work steaming each leaf and then filling and placing in another pan so I turned it into this.

I love cabbage rolls but hate making them. This recipe is so easy and I think cooking the Rotel with the ground meat really makes a difference. Very flavorful!! The Test Kitchen
