For 4 servings you need:
2 tablespoons margarine
10 oz. skinless sausages*

1 lb. firm cabbage *use heart of cabbage or white Dutch cabbage)
1/2 lb. tomatoes
*There is no need to defrost frozen sausages before cooking
1. Melt the margarine in the flameproof casserole. If you do not have this type of casserole then use a skillet plus an ovenproof casserole.
