Faux Spaghetti

For those on a keto diet, pasta is out of the question. So in place of the noodles, thinly sliced cabbage is a great stand in and creates and amazing tasting dish (although not surprising it does taste a lot like cabbage rolls :))


Remove the core, then thinly slice the cabbage into long strands.FauxSpaghetti2

Saute the cabbage in some butter and water and cover until tender. In a separate skillet fry the meat until fully cooked then stir in the pasta sauce.FauxSpaghetti3
