Delicious Sauteed Cabbage.....

There are so many ways to prepare vegetables that are simply fantastic! Oven roasting, pan roasting, braising, just to name a few. For a delicious twist on cabbage, why not try sauteing? When you apply a slow, steady heat to cabbage (or onions), you bring out the natural sugar in the vegetable, causing it to caramelize. You simply thinly slice 1/2 head of cabbage, removing the core. In a large saute pan, heat over medium heat until very hot; add about 2 Tablespoons of olive oil, add cabbage and STIR OFTEN to prevent burning. Add salt and pepper to taste, I recommend tasting throughout cooking to get the seasoning right. The cabbage cooks down and becomes very sweet & tender, simply delicious! (cooking time is about 40 minutes) You could also add a little garlic at the end of cooking and toss with hot cooked linguine pasta and some fresh grated parmesan cheese, OH MY!!
