2. Add cabbage, salt, pepper and saute for 1-2 min. Stir in marinara sauce and cook 3-5min. until flavors have blended.
3. Meanwhile, cook penne in a large pot in rapidly boiling salted H20 until al-dente.

You are so brave to try new things... I find that I am always cooking the same things! I should really try new recipes.

J and I really liked this dinner, R ate it, but without a smile and L got tired of it but ate it as well. It was the cabbage that got to them. J said he didn't even know the cabbage was there until afterwards when the kids grummped about it! I guess when I cook cabbage I shouldn't let the kids see me do it! But this recipe I'll use again.
