It can be difficult to find a healthy alternative to using traditional pasta, so this recipe would be a great one to try with your family. The eggplants don’t have a strong flavor so they take on the tastes of the meat and fresh herbs and give the dish that well-known layered look of lasagna. If you don’t like eggplants, this dish works well using leeks instead, just slice the leek length-ways and flatten out the individual sheets.

You can use your favorite sausage in this keto casserole and the cabbage can take some big flavors, so spice it up if you want to! This keto dish freezes well and tastes even better second-day, making it great for lunches through the week.

Ingredients: green beans, almond flour, sea salt, black pepper, onion, shallots, mushrooms, butter, garlic, chicken stock, heavy cream, parmesan cheese, avocado oil.
Traditionally served as a side at Thanksgiving, green bean casseroles were normally made using canned soup, but here is a healthier recipe that is packed with flavor and texture. It still has the creamy sauce but without the added extras! The green beans are tender and, mixed in with the crispy onions, they make a wonderful dish on their own if you are avoiding meat.
A tip on shopping for green beans from Registered Dietitian Natalie Butler, RD: “Fresh green beans are the healthiest option. Look for beans that are bright green and free of black spots and blemishes. The beans should not be flimsy. For the most nutritional benefits, eat fresh green beans as soon as possible after harvesting or purchasing.”

The Italian sausage and marinara sauce give this casserole a real taste of Italy, and if you serve it cut into triangles it even looks like a pizza! Even the kids would enjoy this.
