Haluski – Fried Cabbage, Onions, and Pasta

On the Menu tonight – Haluski!

What in the world is Haluski? It is a traditional Polish dish made of cabbage, onions, and egg noodles. In my version, I used farfalle (bow-tie) pasta because it’s prettier.

The last time I made this was during Christmas time a few years ago. My brother suggested we make something different for Christmas dinner. We decided on a Polish theme since our grand parents were of Eastern European decent. The only Polish dish I’d made was Stuffed Cabbage. After some research, I decided to make Haluski. It was FANTASTIC!

Now that it’s getting cold, I decided to make it again. Now, I’m sharing the recipe with you. Two tips – 1) Good butter and lots of it. 2) Lots of freshly ground pepper. Don’t use the pre-ground pepper for this dish.

There are only a few ingredients, so use the best you can find. All the ingredients are pretty inexpensive too, a head of cabbage, an onion, a pound of pasta, salt and pepper. You can feed a crowd for less money than you would spend on one fast meal.

I hope that you will try this dish. Let me know how your version turns out.
