Looking for a different treatment for cabbage? Try this spicy cheese-topped dish that I adapted from a friend's recipe. I added a little of this and that until it tasted the way I wanted. Not only do my husband and kids like it, I get rave reviews when I make it for company or church functions. -Bobbie Soileau, Opelousas, Louisiana

"To answer the question of the recipe contributor: Yes, I WAS looking for a new way to use cabbage. My kids and hubby like this vegetable as well as Cajun food so it was bound to be a winning combo. And it IS!! I do use the "Mild" version of the canned diced tomatoes and chilies, but other than that, I make no changes. Good on a cool fall or cold winter's evening to warm the bones!"

"Made this with some cabbage I raised in my garden. It was very tasty. We liked the heat level but it was pretty spicy. If your family is not a fan of spicy food I think it would be delicious made without the hot sauce and cayenne. You could even substitute stewed tomatoes for the tomatoes and chilies. I froze half of my casserole after it was baked and it was just as delicious 3 months later when I took it out of the freezer, so it also makes a very good freezer meal."
