    What a great, simple, inexpensive and quick meal and one that is adaptable to using different ingredients you might have on hand or need to use up. I had some cabbage left from making a soup so I used that and a small onion and the carrots, and I used a pkg of parmesan noodles which is what I had on hand, along with a ham steak instead of the sausage. At the end of the cooking time, I did add about a half cup of sour cream and some dried dill along with the caraway seed. Such a tasty meal. This immediately went into my favorites file and I will be planning on making this anytime I buy a cabbage to use in a recipe. Thank you so much for sharing this and I cant recommend it highly enough. Absolutely delicious!!!

    I used a pkg of noodles with butter sauce, sifted out the powdered sauce and substituted the following:1 tbsp freeze dried chives4 tsp dry buttermilk powder2 tsp onion powder1 3/4 tap kosher salt1 tsp garlic powder1 tsp sugarI used a coffee grinder to grind it up fine, then followed the recipe. I used 1 ounce of the powder but next time I will use more. Very close to original, I think.

    This has become a great go to recipe for me as well. I couldn't find the sour cream noodles so I use the herb and butter as suggested, but then added a tablespoon of sour cream just before serving and adding a bit more caraway and pepper gave more flavor. I have also used herb and butter rice as a substitute in a pinch. Great recipe!

    This recipe is a classic one in my house. Anytime I need a yummy, quick dinner, this is one I make! It's SO good.... creamy... yet you get the flavor from the sausage. Yum! Can't find the Sour Cream & Onion noodles anymore, so I buy the Butter & Herb normally.
