This is a nice change from a typical stuffed cabbage casserole, with the cajun touch. I used a 1/2 cup of frozen homemade recaito (a pureed Puerto Rican style sofrito cooking base) in place of the garlic, onion, and green pepper. I did add one chopped green pepper because I had it and it needed to be used. I'm pretty sure my casserole ended up with a much bolder flavor than the original recipe would have had, but it was really really yummy! Also, instead of the spices indicated, I used 3 teaspoons of a homemade creole seasoning blend I have in the pantry. I layered the cheese and cabbage on top because I didn't want a glob of cheese on top. I used brown rice and had to cook mine 15 min longer. Also, the sofrito added some extra liquid, plus I used lean beef and did not drain the pan so that helped make enough liquid for the brown rice and extra cook time. This was really good and I will definitely make it again!
