This is a milder dish, but still delicious! It was nice to have another way to use up the cabbage!! The ham makes it really good!!

This recipe was pretty plain. Not enough flavor for as much cabbage as it calls for. Had to add about three times as much meat. Won't make again.

I did not have bow tie pasta, I used equal amounts wide egg noodles. I also substituted TURKEY ham for only because I'm on a budget and the turkey ham was on sale. Right before serving, I sprinkled the dish with fresh ground pepper. The boys loved this dish--NO leftovers. NOTE: For those of you who are looking for a cheap and filling dish to stretch your food budget, this is the one for you.

Nice variation on my Mom's (Austrian) pork and bowties. The only thing she did differently is use leftover pork roast, cubed, instead of ham. Your recipe is an awesome combo. Must have more often!!

This is super delicious! So much better than plain cabbage noodles although I adore those too. This is easy, economical, and tastes great. My mother said it was the best cabbage and noodles she ever had! Thank you for the great recipe. I will make it again and again.

This was just ok for me as written. I found it to be a little bland. I usually fry my cabbage in bacon grease for added flavor. I would definitely do that if I make this again. I really liked the addition of ham to the traditional cabbage and noodles.

A humble but very tasty dish for those who enjoy cabbage. Comforting, simple, and ready in just over a half hour.
