Creamed Green Cabbage

This delectable cabbage is coated in a creamy béchamel sauce for extra flavor.

Ingredients:
1 small head green cabbage, cored and shredded (about 10 cups)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 cups whole milk, warmed
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Grana-style cheese
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350°. Bring 1-inch-deep salted water to a boil in a Dutch oven or large pot. Add the cabbage. Cover, and steam, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and let cool slightly. Squeeze out excess water using a kitchen towel.

2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, and cook until bubbling but not browning, 1-2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk. Cook, stirring, until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; add ¼ cup cheese and the lemon zest. Immediately fold cabbage into sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Spoon mixture into a shallow (6-cup) casserole dish. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon of cheese. Bake until bubbling, 30-35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
