From Simply in Season; Serves 6; takes about an hour to cook.
1/4 cup butter
1 large onion, diced
2 Tablespoons paprika
1 medium head of cabbage, thinly sliced
stems of 1 bunch of Swiss chard, thinly sliced, optional
2 teaspoons salt
1 pound egg noodles spaetzle or chunky pasta
In a large, heavy bottomed pot, melt butter and slowly cook onion and sauté about 10 minutes, or until very soft - do not brown.
Add paprika and sauté briefly. Add cabbage, chard stems and salt, stir to coat vegetables with paprika, cover and cook on very low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is very soft. The longer the cabbage cooks, the sweeter it will be. When cabbage is nearly finished, cook noodles and mix into cabbage and pepper to taste. Serve with sour cream if desired.
