A Definite Favorite

This is a meal that I made up, and it is one of our family's all-time favorites! It can be made with or without the sausage. My mom tried it with ground chicken sausage and that worked quite well also. I usually chop up an onion and a couple cloves of garlic and add them to the butter before putting the cabbage in.

Cabbage and Mushrooms with Smoked Sausage

1/2 stick butter
1 head cabbage
1 package fresh sliced mushrooms OR
2 cans mushroom pieces and stems
salt, pepper to taste
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 smoked sausage, cut into chunks
2 packages Ramen Noodles, oriental flavor, cooked according to package directions (drain almost all water before adding flavoring)

Chop cabbage into desired size pieces. Melt butter in skillet on medium heat (this is when you'd add the optional onions/garlic and add cabbage and mushrooms. Salt and pepper to taste and add garlic powder. Stir well. Cover and cook over medium to medium-low heat until cabbage is tender, stirring often. Meanwhile, brown sausage in separate pan. Mix cabbage and sausage together and serve over Ramen noodles. (If you cook the sausage in the same pan as the cabbage, your sausage will not brown and will lose flavor.)
