Keto Fettuccine Alfredo with Sausage & Cabbage Noodles. My new favorite is using cabbage as a keto pasta substitute, and making this is nothing short of a miracle. I could eat this every night for a week and still want more! It holds up a lot better than zucchini noodles or “zoodles” and doesn’t get mushy is the nice thing about cabbage.
Made from butter, cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy whipping cream, the rich keto alfredo sauce So drool-worthy!
Making this is fairly simple.
You basically make the whole thing in a baking dish is one of the best things about this meal. In the baking dish, you put the sliced cabbage, onion, and garlic, then top it with the ingredients that make the alfredo sauce. Then you sprinkle it with the seasonings and put in oven.
You’ll get to cooking the sausage, while the cabbage is roasting with the alfredo sauce ingredients. To melt over the cabbage alfredo mixture is the final step is adding some parmesan cheese and finish by topping with parsley. Trust me, it’s amazing!
Tips for making:
As thin as you can, slice the cabbage, to make your “fettuccine”, about a 1/4-inch thick. Roasted cabbage makes wonderful keto “noodles”. Be sure to discard the (large, tough)stem pieces.
In this recipe, don’t skip out on the lemon. To the dish, it adds a wonderful brightness. If you don’t have a fresh lemon, you could use 3 tablespoons of bottled lemon juice.
