What about the Ribbon pasta fried cabbage dish for your next dinner? We like this recipe as it shows a different way to cook cabbage. It is an easy to make pasta dish with fried cabbage and contains the popular Polish cabanossi sausage. What is Cabanossi?
Cabanossi (or Kabanosy) is a type of dry, thin sausage, similar to a mild salami. It is made from pork and beef, lightly seasoned and then smoked. It is a European sausage and not so easy to find in the USA. We tried to find it in Eastern European deli stores and were lucky to find them there. Alternatively you can use the Polish Kielbasa sausage. If you like spicy sausages use the American pepperoni which is similar but spicy. Cabanossi is not spicy at all. Happy Cooking!
