  • 1 head of cabbage (about 3 lb or 1.5 kg)
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil like rapeseed or sunflower or corn oil
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 lb (1/2 kg) pasta of your choice
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. In the meantime, shred the cabbage into thin slices.
  3. In a large pot, stir oil and sugar until sugar starts caramelizing and becomes lightly brown.
  4. Add cabbage to the pot. Fry, stirring from time to time, until the cabbage is soft, about 15-20 minutes. If cabbage becomes too dry, add about a tablespoon of water at the time to prevent burning. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Drain cooked pasta and mix with cabbage. Adjust seasoning and serve warm.
