How to Make Low Carb Sausage Meatball Casserole

Make the sausage meatballs by combining the sausage meat with salt and black pepper in a bowl. If you don't have sausage meat available, you could use regular ground pork, or even remove the casings from sausage links and use the meat from that. (However, if you're going to do that, you may as well just chop up the sausages instead!) Form the meat into small balls –  I made about 24.

Add some oil to a large skillet and fry the sausage meatballs until browned all over.Low Carb Sausage Meatball Casserole - comfort food recipe with spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes

Transfer them to a baking dish, then use the leftover oil to fry some sliced mushrooms and minced garlic. Add a can of diced tomatoes and some baby spinach, then continue to cook until the spinach has wilted.

Stir in some shredded cheese (I use an Italian blend), then test for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if necessary. Transfer everything to the baking dish using a slotted spoon, then mix in with the meatballs.

Roast in a preheated oven for 15 minutes, then sprinkle some extra cheese over the top. Continue to bake until the cheese has melted.

Garnish with some fresh parsley and serve with a salad for a delicious low carb meal!
