We’re back with a low carb main course meal that’s easy and delicious. That’s what’s cooking as we grab a Bite With Belkys.

2 heads cauliflower cut into bite-sized florets
5 tbs. olive oil
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. Italian sausage
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
1 1/s cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Method of Preparation:

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with foil or parchment papers.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the cauliflower, 4 tbs. cup olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Arrange the cauliflower in a single layer on the baking sheets. Roast in the oven for about 25 minutes, until browned.  

Sausage marinara:  

  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the sausage and cook, breaking apart with a spatula until browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic and sauté for another minutes or so until fragrant. Add the marinara sauce and Italian seasoning.
  • Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce is bubbling.


  • When the cauliflower is done, reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees. Arrange half the cauliflower in the bottom of a baking dish. Spoon half the ricotta over the cauliflower, then smooth it out. 
  • Sprinkle half the shredded Parmesan over the ricotta. Top with half of the sausage marinara.
  • After smoothing that out, sprinkle with half of the shredded mozzarella. Repeat the layers, topping it all off with mozzarella cheese. 
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden.
