Do you love cabbage rolls but hate the mess? My late husband loved them and would beg me to make them. I did. But I dreaded it. Many years ago, I found this recipe. I have no idea where it came from. I made it once and he loved it. I never made 'stuffed' cabbage rolls again. This recipe is easy and good.
