RUNZA CASSEROLE

when I lived in Nebraska there was a food chain called "Runza"...their specialty was a sandwich of homeade dough stuffed with ground beef and spices. This is an easy casserole that plays off the sandwich chain!!

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 head of cabbage shredded or 1 bag of preshredded cabbage
2 cans of pilsbury crescent rolles
Salt and pepper to taste
2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef. Do not drain. Add cabbage and salt and pepper. Cook over low heat until cabbage is soft and thinner pieces are translucent. Drain meat/cabbage mixture. In greased 9x13 pan, line bottom with crescent roll dough. Fill with meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Top with 2nd can of crescent dough. Bake until top crust is brown and flakey. (Approx. 40 min.)
