Thank you so much for the kind words. And I am glad I inspired you Deb. Enjoy your baked ziti. I used Barilla mini penne because I like the pointy ends and grooved quills.

Imitation is the sincerest form of a compliment.

I'm not sure what I'm making. I think it's going to be beef patties with mashed potatoes and gravy with a veggie in the side.
I usually hate cabbage rolls. Thank you for reminding me about kåldolmar. I remember eating those in Sweden in my grandmother's home. I liked them. I just checked some recipes on my Danish cooking site and they are only a little different from cabbage roll recipes I have seen in N.A. I wonder if it is enough to make a difference. One day when I have something else ready to serve if I hate them, I will have to give those a try.

Now that I think about it, I vaguely remember my my mum making them a few times and I didn't hate them or I would remember it better.

One of the reasons I look at this thread is to get inspiration.

My grandma's cabbage rolls did not contain tomatoes. Ground pork, ground beef, cloves, cinnamon, rice, and then the sauce was kinda a thinnish white gravy (of course) flavored with nutmeg. I've emailed a friend who lives in Sweden and likes to cook. His grandma made the BEST limpa bread. I remember he liked to make stuffed peppers, hoping kåldolmar is also on his agenda--I want to know how he makes his sauce.

My Grandma always made them, but they didn't have a tomato sauce. She cooked the cabbage rolls (made with beef and sausage) in the oven and made gravy from the pan drippings.
