    Worked well! Thanks for the recipe! I used LightLife Smart Ground for the fake meat and it was delicious. I needed a little extra water for my rice. Didn't put a whole tomato in each one, probably about a third. Also didn't add red pepper (store was out) and no peas because I don't like them much. Used tomato sauce instead of soup as others had suggested. Added a little dried oregano with the basil. I had about half a cup of extra filling at the end so I will probably use less of everything next time or use a bigger cabbage. I also didn't bother with toothpicks, just put them seam-side down in the dish.  -  03 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Liked the idea of this recipe.First I removed leaves from cabbage and boiled 2 minutes,removed to collander and rinsed in cold water;much easier.Second I was not fond of the tomato soup sauce.I used one can tomato paste mixed with 4 cans water,bay leaf,garlic,1/8 teaspoon allspice,pinch cinnamon and some dried parsley which I simmered on stove beforehand.Otherwise pretty good.Next time I think I'll add some raisins to filling.  -  31 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Loved this recipe and so did my anti-vegetarian husband. I also removed the cabbage leaves, boiled them for 2 minutes. Added dried cranberries to filling mixture - a nice counterpoint to the other flavors. Don't like tomato soup as a sauce so also made a quick tomato sauce by simmering 2 cans of tomato sauce with italian herb seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar. Will definitely make again.  -  04 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
