Cabbage Casserole

I can almost promise that even if you don't like cabbage, you'll like this cabbage dish. It's about as Southern as you can get...the cream soups, the Ritz crackers, the can of Ro-Tel. And sometimes that's just what you need...a casserole to offset the kale smoothies you've been drinking all week. It's called balance.
 
I served this with pork tenderloin and green peas (because Rob loves green peas)...and I couldn't forget the Sister Schubert rolls. The meal was about as Mississippi as you can get, and we loved it. The casserole is creamy, but the cabbage adds a nice crunch. And I like the addition of the Ro-Tel because it makes it a little spicier. Anyway, try it! I think you'll like it!
