Quick and easy stuffed cabbage – without all the work! I love stuffed cabbage, it reminds me of my childhood (a staple in my home growing up), but they can be a bit time consuming. I came up with the idea to chop the cabbage and turn them into bowls instead and they came out so good! My husband RAVED, these are a keeper.

Pasta, greens and poached egg are one of my go-to, no-fuss weeknight combinations in the winter when I'm hungry and need dinner on the table quick. I always have eggs, pasta and some type of green vegetable on hand, for this I used Swiss chard, but spinach, escarole or kale would also work.
