3 cloves minced garlic
1 medium size head of cabbage chopped in small pieces
1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes

1 teaspoon each dried oregano, dried basil and dried parsley or fresh when you can get it
salt and pepper to taste

Optional pinch of cayenne pepper



Add the cabbage, tomatoes, spices and herbs, rice, raw hamburger, or any other ingredients listed, cover with water. Bring to a boil, simmer until cabbage is tender around 35 to 40 minutes or more, add more water if gets too dry especially if using oven method.

This can also be made in a crockpot cooking 8 to 10 hours on low.

Or another method is to make the cabbage with filling layered in a large aluminum foil throw away pan covered with foil and baked on 350 until cabbage is fork tender.

Sprinkle with romano cheese and serve.
