LAYERED BEEF AND CABBAGE CASSEROLE
1 large head of cabbage
¼ cup salad oil
¼ teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, minced
1 32-ounce jar spaghetti sauce (or homemade)
1 8-ounce package mozzarella cheese (coarsely chopped)
Cut ribs from cabbage and discard. Coarsely chop cabbage and place in 5-qt Dutch oven with salad oil and cook until very tender.
Prepare meat sauce: In a 12 inch skillet brown ground beef with onion until liquid is evaporated and beef is well browned. Add spaghetti sauce and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a 9 x 13 baking dish, add ½ cup meat sauce. Layer half of the cabbage and cover with half of the meat sauce and cheese. Repeat with a top layer. Bake 20 minutes or until heated all the way through.
Add sausage of your choice to the meat sauce for a meatier casserole. A good homemade spaghetti sauce makes it that much tastier.
