Description

Sausage and cauliflower casserole is a 21 Day Fix healthy dinner recipe. It’s rich and creamy, and filled with sausage, cauliflower, ricotta cheese, and some healthy greens.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 lb spicy turkey or chicken sausage
  • 1/4 diced onion
  • 1 minced clove of garlic
  • 1/3 cup of low sodium chicken broth (omit for the Instant Pot version)
  • 1 cup of ricotta cheese
  • 12 cups Spinach and/or kale
  • Cooking spray [I use my EVO]
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese blend – I love the shaved kind

Instructions

Stovetop/Oven:

  1. Bring water to a boil and cook cauliflower florets until they are soft.
  2. While that is cooking, coat a pan with cooking spray and brown turkey sausage. Add onions, garlic and green. Toss together and cook until greens start to wilt. Add chicken broth.
  3. Drain cauliflower and place back in the pot. Add turkey veggie mixture and the ricotta cheese. Mix together.
  4. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and add cauliflower turkey mixture. Top with Parmesan cheese.
  5. Cook at 425 for 10-15 minutes

Instant Pot/Oven:

  1. Place head of cauliflower on trivet and add in one cup of water to the IP. Set to steam for ZERO minutes.
  2. After pot comes to pressure, it will beep and and turn to warm (since you set it for 0 minutes). You can Quick Release right away.
  3. Carefully remove cauliflower. Cut into little florets and set aside.
  4. Drain water from IP and dry completely. Spray cooking oil spray and set to saute and add in sausage. Brown until cooked through. Add onions, garlic and green. Toss together and cook until greens start to wilt.
