I've been seeing pictures all over Facebook the last few days of everyone's garden cabbage, so I thought this recipe would be a perfect one to share right now! I just love cabbage, any way possible! My siblings and I loved anything with vinegar growing up, and still do! One of our favorites was soaking shredded cabbage in vinegar until it tasted good, which was usually a few hours! It was a quick pickled cabbage, but oh so good. I really need to make that again and reminisce a little!

This recipe for Pan Fried Cabbage with Pancetta is wonderful! We topped it off with some parmesan cheese, which adds a great touch of flavor. It's a simple and quick side dish, which gets all it's flavor from the pancetta and of course, garlic! My daughter devoured it, which was great, since she's super picky right now! We can't wait to make it again! I hope you enjoy!
