My family loves pasta, and I don't want to deprive them just because I'm not eating it these days. I make cabbage for myself and eat it like spaghetti, with tomato sauce.
As soon as I put the pasta water on to boil, I shred cabbage into long thin strands, and then saute it while the pasta is cooking. The timing works out just right -- everything's ready together. We all have something for extra protein on our plates, as well as an additional veggie.
