Cabbage and Potato Bake

If I said this was my family’s favourite winter dish, I wouldn’t be lying. They get so excited every time I make my Cabbage and Potato Bake for Sunday dinner.

The Tallegio cheese in this recipe is a washed-rind soft cheese that has a strong aroma and flavour, so if you prefer a milder cheese try the Stracchino or Harvati cheese instead. Both are soft cheeses that melt well and are a good alternative for a mild taste.
