Cabbage and Noodles. A Delicious and Cheap Meal.

Here’s another one of my favorite ways to use fresh cabbage from the garden. Since we grow our own veggies, this recipe feeds my family of 6 for less than $3. If we opt for a side of turkey Kielbasa, it’s still only around $8 for us all to eat until we’re stuffed.


  • 1 small head of cabbage
  • 16 oz (1 lb) egg noodles, cooked al dente
  • 2 med. onions, chopped
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Melt butter and olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
Saute the onions until just starting to brown.
Cut the cabbage into thin slices. Add the cabbage to the onions and cook until tender, approx. 5-10 min. (I like to cook it lightly so it still has a little crunch.)
Mix in the noodles. Season with salt and lots of pepper.
Heat through, then serve. (It’s actually good at room temperature,too.)

Goes very well with Kielbasa.

  1. OK guys first,I am a male “chef” of sorts. Retired and disabled, I took up cooking as a hobby and a way to spend a day pretending to have a job.LOL. my question is how do I cook this meal using potatoes. Cabbage will cook faster than the potatoes. Do I slice them or parboil? My wife and I have custody of our 3 grandsons ( 4,6 &3mnts) and they are my worst critic’s. Thanh you in advance for your reply


    • Richard,
      I’ve never added potatoes to this dish, but perhaps somebody else can answer your question. Personally, I’d probably just serve the potatoes on the side. 🙂

  2. I like cabbage with noodles, but better with potatoes and onions. This sounds yummy though and will have to try it on my family. Great recipe.

  3. I have come to believe that cabbage mixed with almost anything will be a great meal. Yours looks good. I might give it a swirl when my cabbage is ready to cut.
