Hungarian Noodles with Cabbage – Káposztás tészta

hungarian cabbage noodles

Two basic ingredients, pasta and cabbage flavoured with a bit of caramelised sugar and freshly ground black pepper with a delicious result.  The flat square-shaped pasta is quite an authentic version but any pasta shape will do. I broke up some lasagna sheets here with good result.

Ingredients

  • 1 head of white cabbage
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1tsp salt
  • 3tbsp sunflower oil
  • flat pasta shapes

Method

  1. Quarter and grate the cabbage, discard the hard core.
  2. Sprinkle with a bit of salt, 2 teaspoons would be enough, combine and let it stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Melt the sugar in the oil, when just starting to brown add the grated cabbage with the excess liquid squeezed out by hand.
  4. Cook the cabbage on moderate heat, watching and stirring until light brown in colour.
  5. Cook the pasta, according to packet instructions, then drain.
  6. Combine the pasta with the cabbage.
  7. Serve with lots of freshly ground black pepper on top.

One thought on “Hungarian Noodles with Cabbage – Káposztás tészta

  1. Finding a durable square noodle is a trick! Mom made soup an flat cut noodles all winter, and dried them on a bed on a clean sheet. The Lasagna noodle worked once and held up without falling apart. Most Italian pastas are designed to be in sauces. I sometimes cut Teszta, but since I also work/ A-Lot I will use something like Lasgna. Found a High quality Pappardelle #83 flat noodle Nests; with high egg content . Will try it for authenticity, But, I did fine with the broken Lag. noodles too.
