If you love stuffed cabbage rolls, then you will love this. It is exactly the same taste in half of the time.
One of my favorite dinners growing up was Cabbage Rolls. Often my Mom did not work when I was growing up and she had a lot of time to cook dinner, she would make these wonderful cabbage rolls. Tender cabbages stuffed with a seasoned hamburger and rice mixture, and these were covered with a slightly sweet tomato sauce. I work so its really hard for me to come home and prepare a dish like this, and eat the meal that evening. This casserole has all of the flavor of the cabbage rolls without all of the work.
