    This is a great recipe. Perfect for taking to a pot luck. Delicous and nutritious. It wasn't very lazy thouogh. Chopping and shredding took time.

    Very tasty. I agree with other reviewers that it needs more cabbage. Next time I will shred the cabbage rather than use layered leaves. I found it to be a little greasy so I will use less cheese next time. Having said all this I would make it again.
