True story: I lived in Cincinnati, OH for two years of my life - I was around age 4-5 but I STILL remember loving Skyline Chili and LaRosa's Pizza. My favorite part was for sure the giant pile of cheddar cheese and that's why I used so much of it in this recipe! Heinen's sells Skyline Chili in the freezer isle and every once in a while I eat it with the fam.
So here's my grand Super Bowl idea, lol. I mean... this is better for you than having Skyline Chili with a pound of pasta or on a hot dog, am I right? Either way, it tastes delicious and there are in fact fewer carbs than traditional Skyline Chili meals. Unless you drink multiple beers while eating it like I did. #SundayFunday
If you're from Cleveland you know that Sokolowski's University Inn has the best pierogies and the best chicken paprikash. So I was daydreaming about Sokolowski's earlier this week and came up with the idea to combine two of my favorite (not to mention the most comforting) meals. The best part is that the ingredient list is SHORT, it's really not that hard to make these little buttery pouches of deliciousness.
Cabbage and noodles might possibly be the easiest pasta dish to make. My Grandma is very Polish and she always finds a way to incorporate cabbage into most meals, so I grew up liking it. I was told by someone one time that "cabbage smells like feet," but a head of cabbage contains more nutrients than a whole football field of ice-burg lettuce - sooooooo stinky feet it is.
I added a couple different types of seasonings and oils to this particular batch of cabbage and noodles because I was feeling the idea of flavor and wanted something kind of spicy.
High five to Trader Joes! They sell this amazing pasta sauce that has quinoa in it (which at first made me weirded out but after I tried it, I was obsessed.) If you are too lazy to get your butt to the store you can use the recipe I posted below which is a tiny bit altered from the store bought sauce. Quinoa is full of antioxidants and nutrients and adding it to pasta sauce is a great way to get more out of your typical pasta dish.
