Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 people
- 220 g lazanki pasta uncooked
- 600 g green spring cabbage or pointed cabbage
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp butter
- Sea salt and pepper to taste and chives and/or dill for garnish
Cut the cabbage in half and remove the tough middle bit. Roughly chop the cabbage, removing the tough bits of the leaves.
In a large shallow pan heat up the oil, add the cabbage and cook over a medium heat for about 4 minutes, taking care not to allow the cabbage to brown. Season (be generous with the pepper), cover and simmer for about 20 minutes (or until the cabbage is tender but still a little crunchy) stirring occasionally.
10 minutes into the cooking boil the pasta in salted water with the bay leaf (optional), according to packaging instructions (5-7 minutes). Strain the pasta and immediately stir into the cabbage. Add the butter, adjust seasoning and serve.
