Italian Style Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
I felt like getting creative and made this recipe. I knew I had a head of cabbage and most of the ingredients to make them but wanted it a bit different, so I used an Italian twist!
There will be extra filling so you can get creative and fill up a few bell peppers!
I know you will enjoy these, it's easy and healthy.

How to Make Italian Style Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
- In another large saucepan, Fill 2/3 full with water, place on med-high heat.
Cut out and discard the stem in your cabbage, wash with cold water. Shake out excess then place in your pan of hot water. After about 10 minutes (not mushy), remove the cabbage.
Carefully peal off the large pieces and rinse with cold water.
- I placed my filled rolls on a cookie sheet until ready to place in the crock pot.
With the extra cabbage, chop it up in pieces.
Pour your chicken broth in a large crock pot and place the chopped cabbage on top of that.
Place your cabbage rolls carefully on top of that.
Turn your crock pot on high for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the cabbage is tender (but not falling apart)
- The broth and cabbage pieces left over in your crock pot can also be served on the side as soup, just add some spices to season. YUMBO!
