If you like the flavor combination of sausage and peppers and the cheesy goodness of lasagna, you'll love this Low-Carb Sausage and Roasted Peppers Mock Lasagna Casserole! This delicious mock lasagna is also gluten-free.
This Low-Carb Sausage and Roasted Peppers Mock Lasagna Casserole was one of those low-carb comfort food ideas that just popped into my head, but it was definitely inspired by my friend Lydia's Slow Cooker Sausage and Four Cheese Lasagna.
