This tasty casserole is hearty enough as a meal on its own, or serve up smaller portions alongside your favorite side dishes. While you won’t be missing out on any flavor here, this dish is low carb and calorie controlled, with around 350 calories per serving!
This easy casserole recipe fits in a standard Pyrex pie dish and makes 6 generous servings. Cabbage is an amazing way to add some roughage and bulk to a low carb dish, and I love the method of cooking the shredded cabbage in a skillet until it first begins to soften before baking. That way the cabbage is nice and tender but doesn’t get too mushy.
Keep the carbs low by pairing this with a salad or some green veggies, or you can toast up some buttery bread to serve on the side.
The eggs, cottage cheese, and chicken make this one protein-loaded and filling dinner entree. It’s also a great way to use up some leftover cooked chicken, or you can pick up a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store and that will do nicely.
