Aļoli is a garlic mayonnaise, originally from the Provence region of France. It's used as a condiment for potatoes, fish, and vegetables.

Directions
1. 
Remove 12 outer leaves from cabbage. Remove any tough center veins from the 12 leaves. Cook half of the cabbage leaves in boiling water for 3 minutes to soften. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining leaves.
2. 
Finely chop enough of the remaining cabbage to make 1/2 cup. Reserve remaining cabbage for another use.
3. 
In a large skillet cook ground beef, onion, and the 1/2 cup chopped cabbage until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender. Drain well. Stir in raisins, bread crumbs, and 1/4 cup of the spaghetti sauce.
4. 
Spoon a scant 1/4 cup of the meat mixture onto each cabbage leaf; fold in sides. Roll up leaf, forming a bundle. Arrange rolls in a 2-quart rectangular baking dish.
5. 
For sauce, in a small bowl stir together the remaining spaghetti sauce and cinnamon. Spoon over cabbage rolls.
6. 
Bake, covered, in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through. Spoon sauce over rolls during baking and before serving. Makes 6 servings.
