Cauliflower = Carbs

Did you know that you can use cauliflower instead of carbs for like everything? No? You’re welcome.

Cheesy Cauliflower Pasta Casserole

1 onion, diced
5 cloves garlic
Chicken, ground sausage or ground turkey
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 tbsp sugar
Basil
Parsley
Salt and pepper
1 head cauliflower, chopped
1 small container ricotta
1 small container cottage cheese
1 cup parmesan, plus some for sprinkling on top
2 eggs
1 tbsp flour or cornstarch in a little water
Cayenne pepper
Nutmeg
Reserved parmesan
1 half cup mozza for sprinkling on top
Panko

Preheat oven to 375

Heat pan with oil, cook onions and garlic until translucent. Add whatever protein you are using and cook through. Add in can of tomatoes and sugar to taste. I always like to add a smidge of sugar when using any tomato sauce to cut down a bit of the acidity. Add in cauliflower, and cover. Cook for seven minutes.

While cauliflower cooks, mix ricotta through nutmeg in a bowl. When cauliflower mixture is done, mix both together in a buttered casserole dish and bake 20 minutes covered. Remove lid, bake a further 20 minutes. Allow to cool until slightly thickened.

CONSUME.
