Polish Noodles

"This recipe combines sage sausage, cabbage, and noodles. Simple and DELISH! This is my husband's grandma's recipe, and my husband's favorite. I couldn't ask for an easier favorite. It's better when served the next day, or cooled for at least an hour, then reheated. "

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with sour cream if desired.

Notes

If you are making this dish ahead to serve the next day, make it watery; the noodles will absorb most of the moisture.
