Do you ever avoid making a dish you love just because it is a lot of work? I know I sure do 🙂 Here is a traditionally fiddly dish, transformed to be completely simple. Just as good, WAY less work, and definietly just as YUMMY!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

1 pound ground beef, browned
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup white rice, cooked
24 ounces tomato juice (1/2 can)
1/2 small cabbage, chopped
fresh ground pepper to taste

Once meat is browned along with the onion, and rice is cooked, combine them together and add the tomato juice. Next, in a medium casserole dish, spread 1/2 of the shredded cabbage on the bottom of the dish, then top with 1/2 of tomato/meat mixture. Make another layer of cabbage and another of meat. Put the lid on the casserole, and bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour, or until the cabbage is fork-tender. Serve alongside fresh French bread for a comforting fall meal.
