    I've made this recipe several times and my family loves them!! I agree that the sauce needs to be doubled. I usually serve them with mashed potatoes. Great comfort food!!

    yep this is a good one. It's the one I got out of Betty Crocker cookbook 30+ years. But I double the sauce and put a 1/4 of it in meat mixture also. That way there is extra in bottom of casserole when done to spoon over rolls. YUM YUM

    My mom makes these and instead of boiling she put the whole cabbage in the microwave for several minutes and didn't make the extra dishes! Thanks for memories! Yum

    This is a wonderful and apparently very traditional cabbage roll recipe. I usually just top my cabbage rolls with tomato sauce, however, your idea for using the pan drippings and cornstarch is great. I will have to try that next time I make these.
    By the way, my better half likes a brown or mushroom gravy on his cabbage rolls so I usually have to make two separate batches :)
    Thanks for the great recipe.
