Low Carb Sausage and Spinach Casserole - comfort food without the carbs!

People tend to think that when you’re on a low carb diet, you have to give up your favorite foods. That’s so not the case. With a few modifications or low carb substitutions, you can have just about anything you want.

Take this low carb sausage and spinach casserole, for example. My kids love it over pasta (and admittedly, so do I). But when I’m watching my carbs and don’t have any low carb pasta on hand, I eat it straight from the bowl. No pasta needed — it’s absolutely delicious without it.

And what better way to get your kids to eat a ton of veggies in one dish? I love sneaking in spinach where I can, and trust me, they don’t even notice it’s there. It blends right in with all that ooey, gooey cheese and savory meat.

It says tomato sauce in the directions but it’s not in the listed ingredients. How much tomato sauce is supposed to be used?

Sorry about that! One 8-oz can of tomato sauce. I've updated the recipe card to reflect that. Thank you for the heads up.

Onions are listed twice in the recipe - do you add both the diced onions and the onions cut into wedges at the same time?

Hi Carol,

I'm sorry. Onions should have only been listed one time. I've updated the recipe card to reflect this. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
