Cabbage Parmigiana

  Cabbage Parmigiana 7

Who watched the Oscars last night? I’m not tuning in because I needed a trashy (3 hour) fix of The Real Housewives of Atlanta instead, but I’m still checking the red carpet arrivals on my phone like it’s my full-time job.


No need to watch Fashion Police you guys. Here’s the scoop:

Best Dressed:
1. Kerry Washington
2. Sandra Bullock
3. Jennifer Garner

Not so Much:
1. Anne Hathaway
2. Emma Watson
3. Jennifer Lawrence (hair = ick)

Oh wait. Did you guys come here for the food? Okay, let’s talk cabbage! I love eggplant parmesan and chicken parmesan…why not cabbage pamigiana. Instead of the traditional breading, we roasted it until it was crisp. This was definitely a fun new spin and I really liked it. Add a quick tomato sauce and gooey mozzarella and voila!

Here’s what you’ll need

Arrange slices of cabbage on s baking sheet.

Brush with olive oil and season lightly with s&p

While the cabbage roasts, make a quick sauce

Spoon tomato sauce on top of the cabbage

Now a slice of fresh mozzarella

A new spin on cabbage!

A new spin on cabbage!
