This is adapted from a Family Circle recipe. If you like Stuffed Cabbage Rolls, you'll LOVE this. I have made this low-sodium, but you can make alterations to add that salty flavor.

    Some people prefer to add rice as is true to Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Some serve over mashed potatoes. I prefer to eat mine as a soup or stew.
