Fiorella creates a healthy twist on the classic Italian American parmigiana and the latest health craze of cauliflower rice! This recipe is low-carb and vegetarian friendly, and trust me, you will not miss the pasta!
Marinara Sauce (try my homemade recipe!)
Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese
Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat. Add garlic and heat until aromatic.
Add cauliflower rice, stir and saute 6-7 minutes.
In a separate pan, saute sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil. Season with salt to taste. Stirring occasionally until tender.
In a small pot, heat marinara sauce until lightly simmering. Add sauteed mushrooms and reduce heat to low until ready to serve to allow the flavors to mix.
Scoop a heaping spoonful of the sauteed cauliflower rice. Then add spoonfuls of mushrooms in marinara sauce over cauliflower rice.
Serve with a generous sprinkle of parmigiano cheese and enjoy!
