I doubled the sauce, used ground turkey instead of ground beef, and followed another reviewer's suggestion to freeze and then thaw the cabbage to allow the leaves to peel off easily. I didn't like this much the day I made it, but for some reason, I really liked the leftovers. However, it was difficult to eat the rolls without them falling apart. I think I would prefer a recipe with the same ingredients but layered with shredded cabbage so it's easier to eat. Also, the sauce got very runny. Maybe this was my fault because the turkey wasn't lean enough, but I'd rather not pay more for extra lean turkey. If I make this again I might try using tomato paste in place of some of the tomato sauce or undercooking the rice so it will absorb the juices. This recipe has a lot of potential, but I won't make it again without changing it.
