My friends in Pennsylvania are familiar with this combination, but I'm betting most of my friends in the south have never considered such a dish. I never did until I moved up here. I believe the first time I had Haluska was at a wedding. It's a Hungarian dish which seems to be very popular in this area. I decided to make a healthier version last night, and it turned out pretty good. It's super easy and takes only a few ingredients.
Cabbage & Noodles
2Tbsp. olive oil
1 head of Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
1 bunch of green onions, chopped
two large handfuls of old-fashioned noodles
2 cloves of garlic, minced
salt & pepper
Cook noodles according to package directions, meanwhile heat oil in a deep skillet, add cabbage and cook until soft. Add onions and garlic, cook one minute more. Add noodles and season with salt & pepper. I like lots of fresh ground black pepper in this dish.
I served it hot last night and ate cold leftovers today. It's actually pretty good cold!
