Cabbage Roll Casserole

If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal with seasonal flavor, look no further. This one pan meal is perfect for the midweek madness and is so simple the kids can get involved. Substitute ground turkey for ground beef to achieve a leaner meat option. Add cheese for additional flavor or other vegetable of your choice (not represented in the nutrition information listed below). Cabbage is currently in season in North Carolina. Check out your local Farmer’s Market or grocery store as prices are typically lower when in season. Don’t forget to use your SNAP dollars.

  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 garlic clove (minced)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, low-sodium (16 ounces)

  • 1 1/2 cups water
