Making the Cheesy Casserole

  • Preheat over to 375°F and grease a baking dish.
  • Cook veggies of choice, just till starting to get tender. We used 4 zucchini. You can do this with a bit of water and butter in a skillet, roasting the veggies, or by steaming the veggies lightly, either in a stove-top steamer or in the microwave. Pop your vegetable into a large bowl with two tablespoons of water, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and microwave for 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and set aside.
  • Sliced zucchini
  • If you have time, roasting the vegetables at 400 to 425 degrees, for between 20 to 30 min. This will depend on your vegetables and your oven.
  • Cook meat in skillet until cook through. Set aside.
  • In a skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add bell peppers and garlic. Cook until peppers are tender, about 6 minutes.
  • Stir in almond flour. Add almond milk and heavy whipping cream and mix well. Simmer until mixture is thickened. About 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in ricotta, salt, parmesan, and cayenne pepper.
  • Add vegetables and meat to the mixture and toss to coat.
  • Spoon into the prepared baking dish and sprinkle with the topping.
  • Bake until heated through and crumbs are golden brown on top, about 30 min. Remove from oven.
