Recipe: Pasta -Cabbage Can't be Onions-

It was getting late, and I wanted to have some quick and easy dinner. It was so hot and humid out today, I wanted something light. I looked up some recipes, and came across a shrimp pasta. I had a couple ingredients missing… onions, and bacons. Instead, I decided to use what I had in my fridge, cabbage and a sausage…


  • Pasta (Any kind you have in your pantry…)
  • Sausage: 1 (Again, any kind you have in your fridge/freezer)
  • Shrimps: 6-10 medium or large
  • Cabbage: I used the left over core about the size of pool ball
  • Canned Tomato: 1 can
  • Garlic: 1 piece

yeah.. I was missing 1/3 of ingredients I needed.


  1. Bring water to boil in a large pot, add some salt and olive oil to cook pasta
  2. Clean Shrimp (Peel, and take its tails off)
  3. Chop garlic and cabbage, slice the sausage
  4. In a saucepan, heat olive oil, a tiny bit of butter (if you desire), and then toss shrimps and half the garlic in, steam with white wine, then put it aside in a bowl
  5. Depends on cooking time of the pasta, start cooking paster around at this point (mine was about 7 min)
  6. In the same pan, put the rest of garlic, sausage, and cabbage
  7. Cook until it get soft, and slightly start drink, then add the canned tomato
  8. Sprinkle some red wine, simmer a little then put back the shrimps
  9. Add some salt/pepper if necessary
  10. When pasta is ready, toss the cause and pasta together, and Bon Appetit!

I tasted pretty good. Light, and quick. but… Cabbage can’t replace onions… and bacons and slices sausages are not the same… I knew it… it came out bit different than what I was expected. I probably cook this again though. I did like the outcome.
