This was a hit at dinner last night. The schnitzel was 4 star, but the noodles and cabbage was the hit of the meal. I used spaetzel instead of egg noodles, but otherwise followed the recipe. Husband wolfed down 3 helpings of the noodles. Served with a simple salad. Definitely will make again! YUMZ!
