We’re big fans of any recipe that takes one of our favorite dishes and finds a way to make it a whole lot easier-like this homey Cabbage Roll Casserole made in a 13×9 pan. Doreen Martin from Kitimat, British Columbia is the mastermind behind this delicious creation, and we’re so thankful for her ingenuity. “I created this hearty casserole that tastes like cabbage rolls but without all the work,” she says. It’s the kind of mash-up meal our dreams are made of.
