Deconstructed Cabbage Rolls

Deconstructed is such a Food Network term. I love it.
I had some leftover raw cabbage, tomato sauce, and ground turkey. Enter: cabbage rolls. Meat and sauce rolled up and cooked in a cabbage leaf.  But made in one stove top pot, with zero effort!
...and, cheese. Because...YES.

Serves 2-3

2 cups roughly chopped/sliced raw green cabbage
1/2 cup brown rice
2/3 cup water
1/3 cup white wine
1 cup tomato pasta sauce (any variety)
1 cup cooked, browned, and seasoned ground turkey
2 Tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Boil the water, add the wine and tomato sauce. Pour in the rice and cabbage.  Stir, and simmer on medium until rice is tender. About 3/4 of the way through the rice cooking process, add in the cooked ground turkey.

...I mean...could that be any easier? That's it!

Plate and top with a bit of grated Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.

All the cabbage roll flavor, in an easy and quick one pot meal!
