POLISH NOODLES ( KLUSKI Z KAPUSTA)


Polish and Russian word for cabbage. Kluski means noodles pronounced KLU-ski My mother would add Kielbasa to this dish unless we had it on Fridays and then we ate no meat. This is real comfort food. It makes a great side dish or have it as a main dish with crusty bread and good butter.
Boil egg noodles medium thickness
Sauté in 1/4 pound of melted butter:
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion chopped
1 very large head of cabbage (green) shredded medium when the vegetables are limp, add 1 Tablespoon of caraway seed and salt and pepper to taste. Drain noodles. Pour vegetables over noodles. Stir in 1 pint or more of sour cream. Sometimes I serve sausage and bread, but usually we just have bread.

I'm not a big fan of caraway seed so I don't use them and if you want to lighten up this dish you can leave out the sour cream, and its just as good,I also like to add mushrooms to mine.
I hope you enjoy this old recipe.
