Description

Italian flavors in easy skillet dinner that even my carb loving hubby likes. Feel free to use sweet Italian sausage instead, if you prefer. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, nut free, coconut free. For dairy free and paleo, omit cheese. For low sodium, see notes in recipe.

Ingredients

  • ½ heads Large Caulilflower, Riced Or Cut Into Tiny Florets (or 10 Oz. Frozen Cauliflower Rice, Defrosted)
  • 1 pound Silva Hot Italian Sausage (1 Net Carb Per Link)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 can (14 1/2 Oz. Size) Italian Style DIced Tomatoes With Garlic, Oregano And Basil (I Use Signature Select)
  • ¼ teaspoons Italian Spice Blend
  • 1 cup Italian Four Cheese Blend, Shredded
  • Finely Chopped Parsley, For Garnish

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Use an oven safe large skillet, or grease/spray a 7×11 baking pan and set it aside.

Chop cauliflower into very small florets or chop fine in food processor, or rice with grater. (I make it both ways.) Steam in microwave with 1 tablespoon water just until fork tender. Drain if necessary, set aside.

Remove sausage from casings. Brown in large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking into bite size chunks as it cooks. Let it get browned all over. Do not drain the grease.

When sausage is done, add garlic and continue cooking about 1 minute. Add diced tomatoes with juice, cauliflower, and spice. Mix well. Leave in skillet, if oven safe, or turn out into prepared baking dish. Top with shredded cheese.

Bake 30 minutes, or until cheese is lightly browned. Allow to set up for about 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with fresh parsley when serving.
