Bacon, Cabbage and Noodles

I received this fried cabbage and noodles recipe from a friend of Hungarian descent. Some folks turn up their noses when it is presented, but after one taste, they always come back for seconds...and thirds! —Jeanie Castor, Decatur, Illinois

    I made this with just a few slices of bacon because that is all I had. I stir fried the cabbage rather than covering the pan so that the cabbage retained a bit of crispness to it. I served this with baked acorn squash for a delicious meatless meal.Avidcook, Volunteer Field Editor

    Paprika made it better. Made it with 1/2 pound bacon (what I had open) and mini spiral pasta (out of egg noodles). A nice, easy dinner.

    Old fashioned comfort food! Perfect for a night when you are tired and hungry and need something comforting. Quick and easy to make. A definite keeper.

    A dash of good Hungarian paprika brought this from very good to great!

    I add butter and sometimes use Conecah sausage instead of bacon. I always heard the dish was called Halushka (spelling?) and my family LOVES it.

    This is absolutely delicious. My mother taught me this combination over 30 yrs. ago. I've kinda tweaked it a little. I add some Greek seasoning and garlic and use linguine as the pasta. Haven't had any lately so thank you for the reminder recipe.

    I tried this using the added onion, vinegar & sugar, still thought it was a little blah. Probably won't make it again.
