Recipe Tips & Notes

  • Kielbasa can have quite a few carbs so I like to slice it thin and then cut it in half to make it seem like more. However it does add so much flavor to the dish. If you don’t care about carbs you can use as much as you want. I only used ½ of a package.
  • You can substitute a flavored sausage instead of kielbasa if you wanted to.
  • I tried to keep the carbs down and therefore didn’t make too much sauce but if you want more sauce go for it. The sauce isn’t as high in carbs as the cabbage and kielbasa.
  • It’s important to cut the cabbage noodles into thin strips. I used a mandoline to get uniform slices but you can just use a knife. You don’t want them too thick or it will take longer to cook.
