Author Butter For All


  • 1 Head Green Cabbage
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 1 Bulb Fresh Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 Teaspoon Dried Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Shaved


  1. Cut cabbage into long narrow strips about 1/2 inch thick. Set it aside.

  2. Peel and mince the garlic.

  3. In a large skillet melt the butter over medium-high heat.

  4. Once the butter is melted and bubbly add the garlic. Sauté the garlic just until it starts to brown. Add the herbs, salt and chili flakes to the garlic and stir them in well.

  5. Add the cabbage and toss gently to coat. Cook the cabbage until it starts to wilt and becomes tender. You want it to be just cooked. If you cook it too long it will release too much juice. A good indicator that it is done is when it just starts to release some juices. 

  6. Move the noodles to a serving bowl or plates and top them with shaved parmesan!
