Favorite Recipes with Italian Sausage (and Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage)
There’s no doubt that hot or sweet Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage is one of my favorite ingredients! This post shares some Favorite Recipes with Italian Sausage, plus more about why I’m recommending Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage as one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks!
Today I’m sharing some Favorite Recipes with Italian Sausage and also talking about my favorite Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage! This tasty sausage is something I grab from the freezer when I need a quick dinner, and I’ve made so many tasty recipes using it. I’m a fan of both the Jenni-O Hot Italian Turkey Sausage and the Jenni-O Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage, and both varieties have ZERO CARBS, which is one reason I love them! But if you’re not cooking for kids, the slightly spicy Hot Italian sausage is the one I like best.
it’s only fitting that I make Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage one of my Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, since I use it so often and have so many recipes that include it. Of course this sausage is fantastic with pasta of any type, but I’ve also made a lot of low-carb dishes using it. Here are some of my favorite recipes with Italian Turkey Sausage; I hope you’ll enjoy trying some; and if you’ve already made some of these, I’d love to hear in the comments about how you liked them or other ways your family enjoys turkey Italian sausage.
Why I love Jenni-O Turkey Italian Sausage
It’s mostly the spicy flavor that makes me love this Jenni-O Italian Turkey Sausage! But it doesn’t hurt that it has zero carbs, and when it goes on sale like this I grab four or five packages to stash in the freezer to pull out later and make one of these recipes. And I think this sausage is the start of so many tasty meals! I even use it occasionally for a splurge on something that’s not super low in carbs, but most of my favorites are low in carbs.
This Low-Carb Mock Lasagna Spaghetti Squash Casserole is a dish where the flavor of the sausage really shines!
Low-Carb Sausage and Kale Mock Lasagna is a casserole that has layered kale, sausage, tomato sauce and cheese, and this has been a hit with everyone I’ve made it for.
Low-Carb Stuffed Peppers with Turkey Italian Sausage, Ground Beef, and Mozzarella is a favorite stuffed pepper recipe I’ve been making for years. These peppers don’t have rice and this recipe is low-carb and gluten-free.
Sausage, Peppers, and Mushrooms Low-Carb Cheesy Bake is one of my newest recipe ideas using Italian sausage, and we gobbled it up when we tested the recipe!
Instant Pot Sausage Soup with Pesto is another soup that has a lot of sausage and peppers and not that many beans, and you can replace the beans with cauliflower rice if you want a low-carb version.
This Breakfast Casserole with Sweet Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Cheese was so delicious it made me wonder why it had taken me so long to try Italian sausage in a dish like this.
I’d never get tired of these Zucchini Noodles with Spicy Cherry Tomato, Sausage, Garlic, and Herb Sauce.
In the fall when you get those giant zucchinis, I love this Grilled Zucchini Low-Carb Lasagna with Italian Sausage, Tomato, and Basil Sauce that uses big slices of zucchini instead of pasta.
