Oh this was absolutely delicious. I did halve the recipe for the two of us and baked it in an 8 x 8 dish. Wow, it was soooo good. Served it with Best City Chicken (AR) and steamed, buttered rice. We both really enjoyed the combination, and I KNOW this will be made again and again. Thanks, Paula!!

Eh. Nothing spectacular. I guess I was expecting something that tasted different than steamed cabbage that you made on the stovetop. To me, baking it didn't add much of a flavor profile or make it any different that stovetop cabbage dishes. There was leftovers, and we will be using it as stuffing for beirocks.

I made this casserole for the first time January 2012, when it was still a "personal" recipe that Paula so graciously shared back then. This was my Review, as follows: "CABBAGE-CARROT CASSEROLEā€ ~ We BOTH really liked this casserole! My husband does not usually comment, but he did this time. I used freshly grated Colby-jack cheese for the cheese sauce (good) because that is all I had, but would also like to try mild cheddar as Paula suggested. Nice to find a new recipe that is a keeper. I did NOT use chicken broth. For the cheese sauce, I used half reserved broth from draining the cooked cabbage/carrots (in water) and half non-fat milk (did use real butter though). Creamy and delish. I forgot to sprinkle on the paprika. SO SIMPLE BUT GOOD. WE THANK YOU PAULA, AND YOUR GRANDMA!

I left in in bigger pieces than grated and thin sliced IT was the PERFECT match! Can't wait to eat the leftovers today~ Thanks again! SOOOOOOOO YUMMMMMY!

This recipe is fantastic -- I've made it twice in the last week and we've eaten it up -- it's so good I could drink it! This will definitely be a staple in our home! BTW I didn't change a thing!

surprisingly yummy! this will be on our regular list for sure. it doesn't call for too much cheese so it's pretty healthy and the taste is really great! a winner all around. thank you!!!!! I did use chili powder instead of paprika as that is all I had, turned out great. doesn't even need salt which is surprising. I did add a touch of pepper at serving time.

Made recipe exactly as written except used vegetable bouillon cubes. My husband and I really enjoyed this. I will make again, but will most likely double it to freeze for lunches.

If you like cooked cabbage, this recipe is for YOU. These ingredients meld so well together. I halved the recipe since there were only 2 of us, and we had plenty for lunch the next day also. I served this with 'Grilled Chicken Wings with Sweet Red Chili and Peach Glaze', another AR recipe. These 2 dishes went well together and we had a great dinner. Thanks Paula for sharing your recipe, I'm really glad this recipe got published.
