Pork and Cabbage with Spaghetti

This all-in-one dinner featuring fresh veggies and tender pork is a family favorite, says Marjorie Frazier of Summerville, South Carolina. "Serving it with pasta is a bit different," she adds. "My granddaughter regularly asks for 'vegetable spaghetti'."

    My family, especially my husband, loves this. He was surprised something so plain looking could be so great. It's a favourite of ours. Great flavour.

    I cut the recipe in half, used 4 oz. pork, 4 oz, spaghetti, cabbage, zucchini, carrots,onion and cherry tomatoes...really good...I did have to add some chicken broth to make a light sauce.

    Made as directed in an attempt to get my kids to eat more veggies. My son just ate the noodles and my daughter ate the meat and some noodles. lol Overall, it is a nice, healthy meal.
