"I made this with an added onion, also. Used green onion flavored noodles that are now available in my market. I mixed Hungarian hot paprika into the sour cream and mixed all together. I skipped the oven and served right out of the skillet. It was rich, spicy and creamy with a wonderful crunch of the cabbage and onion. This recipe is on my keeper list!"

"I've made this recipe many times since finding it in Taste of Home in 2000. It is definately comfort food. Hard to believe something with so little ingredients would taste so good. And it can't get much easier to make. Don't change a thing in the recipe and you'll love it and will get many complaints. Oh, and I also agree that the # of servings is way off, unless used as a side dish. Makes a great main dish and it will serve closer to 4."

"Good old fashioned comfort food. Perfect when you want something easy and comforting. I served it after sauteing the cabbage and mixing in the noodles and bacon. It didn't even need the sour cream to top it off (good thing because I didn't have any). I haven't made this in ages but its a definite keeper!"

"Okay, so i already rated this, but just wanted to update. I made it tonight after several years and WOWSERS it is good. Hard to believe something so basic can be so great.

Important note: it says it makes 10 servings. That would only be as a side dish and even then I think it would be tough to get 10 out. I think it is good enough as a main dish (but for company I'd make it a side). As a main, you wouldn't feed more than 4."
