1 medium head cabbage
2 small red onion, thinly sliced – or could use whatever you have
5 – 6 small potatoes, thinly sliced – any kind – I used red and russets
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 pound well-seasoned bulk sausage
2 clove garlic
1 – 6 ounces tomato paste and one can of water
1/4 teaspoon each – dried basil, thyme, sage, garlic salt or to taste
8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
handful shredded parmesan cheese
salt & pepper
1 1/2 – 2 cups heavy cream
Step 1: Place a large pot on the stove and pour in water over high heat, then allow it to boil.
Step 2: Cut the cabbage into two and discard the core. Remove the outer leaves of the cabbage.
Step 3: Place the cabbage into the pot with the boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes.
Step 4: Place the cabbage in cold water and allow it to cool.
Step 5: Thinly slice the onion and potatoes and place them in cold water.
Step 6: Place a medium skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Step 7: Add in oil and allow it to become hot.
Step 8: Add in the sausage and cook until greasy and crumbly.
Step 9: Add in the garlic, basil, and garlic salt. Stir until well mixed.
Step 10: Add in water and tomato sauce. Stir until well combined. Add more seasonings if needed.
Step 11: Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.
Step 12: Apply cooking spray in a 4-quart casserole dish.
Step 13: On the bottom of the casserole, arrange the blanched cabbage, salt, and pepper.
Step 14: Add red onion layer over the cabbage followed by a layer of potatoes, 1/3 of the sauce, and 1/3 mozzarella cheese. Repeat this process until all the ingredients are arranged in layers ending with cream on top.
Step 15: Cover the casserole with aluminium foil.
Step 16: Place it inside the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Step 17: Remove the cover and sprinkle a generous amount of Parmesan cheese on top. Put it back inside the oven and bake for another 20 to 30 minutes or until the colour turns golden.
