Cabbage and Noodles

This dish goes by many names depending on the cultural background of the person talking about it.  The name we used at home probably is a bastardized German-ish word since when I bring it up with native German speakers they look at me like I’ve lost my freaking mind.  Doing a Google Translate I get the word “Kohlnudeln” but my dad used the word(s) Kraut Knookles (spelling as it sounds) which I’m pretty sure isn’t really German except the “Kraut” part.

This is a dish that can be whipped up for pennies given cabbage isn’t expensive and I can get elbow noodles at Walmart for $1 for a one pound box.  My quasi-vegetarian niece loves them as well.
