Smothered Cabbage with carrots & Sweet Peppers

Rose Mary Mogan


This was a quick side dish meal idea for dinner the other day, using ingredients I had in the fridge.

The carrots and sweet peppers makes the dish very colorful and they are also quite tasty.

Simple, Quick and easy is always the best way to go when you are trying to get dinner on the table quickly. I served it with Grilled Pork Chops and Stouffars Mac & Cheese, so it really doesn't get much quicker than that.
