Cabbage Pasta



My hubby and I have been trying to make some healthy changes in our diet so I have been looking around the world for recipes that rely heavily on veggies.  This one is soooo simple and yet sooo delicious.  This is a traditional Romanian dish called Kaposztas Teszta.

So here is the recipe, as far as I can tell it is pronounced something like cap O stash test az.  I cannot confirm since I know no one who speaks the language.

Kaposztas Teszta (Romanian Cabbage Pasta)

      1-2 tbsp bacon grease*
      1 package bow-tie pasta           
      1 tbsp. oregano
      1 tsp. garlic powder
      1 medium head of cabbage, grated   
      1 small onion, diced small       
      2-4 strips smoked/cured bacon cut small
      Salt, Pepper.

*Note: Whenever I cook bacon I keep the grease left over in a sealed jar in my spice cupboard.  It keeps for a long time (over 3 months, longer if refrigerated/frozen) and it is a useful way to add a lot of flavor with just a little fat to dishes.  Especially the random fried egg...

Cook bow-tie pasta according to directions.
Add about 1 cup of chopped salt pork to a skillet and fry it slowly on low so that the most of grease is in the pan (may need to add a little more from your stock of bacon fat*).

Meanwhile, grate the head of cabbage fine.

When the bacon/salt pork is crispy, add cabbage and sauté until the cabbage is translucent and golden (not burned, just toasted).
