First, welcome to DC. Second, please describe cabbage roll casserole for us so we can make some suggestions. When I make what I call cabbage rolls (aka stuffed cabbage), I will serve them with either mashed potatoes or boiled parsley potatoes with real bacon bits.

My vote is yes to both!! I saw a great looking artichoke soup on here tonight, and you can't go wrong with a spinach salad with warm bacon vinigrette dressing IMO!

IMHO - cabbage needs a side of potatoes - mashed, boiled or go fancy with some potato-onion-cheese perogi (boiled and then tossed into a skillet with some butter to brown up a bit).

A soup - maybe pumpkin, butternut squash or acorn squash.

Or just roasted acorn or butternut squash with some butter, maybe a little honey and some cinnamon/nutmeg -or- maybe simply cubed and roasted with some parsnips and/or rutabagas and quartered onions.

Roasted garlic Mash Potatos
Roast garlic in oven and then add it to your mashed potatos

I had planned on making Stuffed Cabbage AKA pigs in a blanket for a family function one time.
I got a huge head of cabbage and while making the filling I heard a noise, turned around and my cabbage split right down the middle. SO now no rolls so instead i cooked the cabbage and then layered like Lasanga with the cabage and the filling along with some crushed tomatoes. Took it to the gathering and mom said thought you making Pigs and I said - I was but it turned out to be Polish Lasgana instead and it was good and maybe a couple spoonsfull left at the end..

I'm with those who suggested potatoes. Also, something to cut the richness of the cabbage roll dish. The squash idea sounds just right. If you are serving several courses. the soup and the salad suggestions sound great, also.

I would serve a fruit salad or maybe just cut-up fresh fruit. Maybe a waldorf salad.... It would be a nuce counterpoint to the heavy cabbage, potatoes, etc.

I always made mashed potatoes with stuffed cabbage rolls. The gravy is so delicious poured over mashed potatoes and I also served buttered carrots, just plain buttered carrots. My family loved this combination so I never did anything else. The cabbage rolls and gravy have such an intense, deep flavor that any other vegetable would have competed I thought.
