Spicy Baked Cabbage

The last few weeks the Farmers Market has had the most beautiful fresh cabbages. I just could not resist coming home with some of those cabbages, we love cabbage, boiled, baked, or in a cole slaw. This is a spicy recipe that makes a great side dish for any meal. We love this dish and I am happy to share it with you today.
