Kasha is a childhood comfort food, a fixture from my mother's immigrant family - great depression era youth. Cabbage wasn't cooked in my mother's kitchen, but cookbooks have taught me ways to love this peasant food. Chorizo is a newer favorite as my travel-through-cooking expands into the spicy world flavors. Tasty, healthy, simple, I enjoy this recipe as a new comfort food.
My version is both vegetarian and gluten-free; you should use the sausage and pasta that suit your preference and taste. —susan g
