Beefy Alfredo (THM-S, Low Carb, opt. Gluten free)

Listen everyone. This casserole was consumed entirely by my family. I have three little boys and a husband…and the 9×13 disappeared before my eyes! This is a good hefty hearty casserole that made my boys very happy. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed by this. This would be classified a Heavy S…and it uses a bunch of dairy. All the extras were very indulgent…and comforting. So if you’re craving comfort…this is it!

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef, cooked

Box of pasta cooked according to directions

¼ c. butter, cut into small pieces to place on the bottom of the 9×13 dish.

For the alfredo sauce:

1 lb cottage cheese

4 oz cream cheese

½ c. heavy cream

½ c. almond milk

¼ tsp glucomannan

1 tsp mineral salt

2 tsp dried garlic powder

1 ½ tsp Italian seasoning

½ tsp onion powder

5 tbsp parmesan cheese (green can)

Mozzarella and parmesan cheese to add to the top of the casserole.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cook the ground beef and noodles. (Use any preferred noodles…spaghetti squash, zoodles, Dreamfield’s pasta, or sautéed cabbage.)

Place all the sauce ingredients in a food processor. Process until smooth.

Cut up butter and put in dish.

Place noodles and beef in a 9×13 dish, and add the sauce. Mix all around until everything is incorporated together.

Top the mixture with mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan. (I didn’t include a measurement here…because you can decide how much cheesy topping you would like!)

Place the dish in the oven, and cook for 35-45 minutes…watching the last few minutes to make sure the cheese isn’t getting too brown. I pulled it out of the oven when the middle was bubbly.

This was delicious and filling. I wasn’t kidding when I said my boys devoured it. They went back for seconds and thirds, maybe fourths!

Let me know if you try it! I hope you like it.
