This is a recipe for Cabbage, Sausage and Bacon Noodles with a Cheddar-Mustard Sauce. The source of my inspiration was a traditional Irish recipe for bacon and cabbage with two sauces: parsley and a whole-grain mustard sauce. I took flavors from both sauces and combined them, and took the bacon and cabbage theme a little further by adding Italian sausage. Instead of serving it with potatoes I used egg noodles. It’s a fusion of Irish with my own Italian-American style of cooking. It all works to make one of the most delicious noodle dishes I’ve ever eaten.
What I loved most was that all the flavors worked together. The cheddar-mustard sauce didn’t overwhelm the other flavors like I thought it might. Mustard and cheese makes for a happy marriage. Just add a little to your next grilled cheese and the flavor will sing. A mixture of hot and sweet sausage adds a gentle bite of spiciness. The cabbage wilts down and assimilates right into the dish along with the crumbled bacon to add another layer of flavor. It was a truly comforting dish, a warm hug on a rainy, dreary day.
