Baked Cabbage Rolls


Yummy and easy to make!

Makes: ~ 6 servings


1 lb ground meat (turkey, beef or pork) 93% fat free

1 jar Bertolli spaghetti sauce (I use the olive oil, basil, garlic organic kind)

1 head of cabbage

½ teaspoon garlic powder



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Wash the cabbage thoroughly.

  3. Steam the cabbage. Place cabbage in large pot with lid and fill with about 1 inch of water. Heat pot on high heat until water boils. Keep the lid on the pot to make sure the steam really works. Steam for about 7 minutes.

  4. While the cabbage is steaming, spray a 9x13 baking pan with cooking spray.

  5. Place ground meat in a medium-sized bowl.

  6. Add about ¾ cup of the spaghetti sauce and the garlic powder into the ground meat.

  7. Mix the meat mixture.

  8. Remove cabbage from pot (carefully – cabbage will be hot).

  9. Remove the limp cabbage leaves and set aside. You will need to cut the leaves near the core on the bottom of the cabbage head. If you cannot remove 12-15 leaves, then remove as many as you can and re-steam the rest of the cabbage head until you get about 12-15 leaves.

  10. Take one cabbage leaf and place about 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture into the leaf. Roll the leaf like a taco or burrito, tucking in the sides of the leaf.

  11. Place the cabbage roll into the greased baking dish with the seam side down.

  12. Continue making cabbage rolls until the pan is full.

  13. Pour about ½ cup of spaghetti sauce over the cabbage rolls.

  14. Place foil tightly over the pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.

  15. Just before serving, heat the remaining spaghetti sauce, and serve it with the baked cabbage rolls. Each serving is about two cabbage rolls.
