Cajun Sausage & Sun-dried Tomatoes Dish

I originally made this dish with pasta, but wanted to make it keto friendly! It turned out so yummy, you wouldn’t even know it was low carb. To make the sauce into a roux, you use Xanthan gum as the thickener instead of flour. I use heavy cream for the sauce, and it gives it a nice and creamy consistency. The Cajun sausage links are not spicy but full of flavor for the dish. We served the sauce & sausage on top of spaghetti squash and it was delicious. Paired it up with a side salad and it was the perfect low carb dinner. Hope you enjoy this!

Slice links into 1/4” pieces.
Add to skillet with oil from sundried tomatoes.
Chop up sundried tomatoes in the mean time.
Remove links and set aside, sauté onion in remaining oil and add butter.
Add in minced garlic cloves and cook for 1 min, then add in Xanthan gum & stir.
Add in diced bouillon cube & water & stir, then add in heavy cream
Let sauce bubble then turn the heat down to low.
Stir sauce to thicken and add in sundried tomatoes, thyme & red pepper flakes.
Add sausage back in! Stir it up!
Ready to be gobbled up 😋
Served on top of shredded spaghetti squash and with a side salad.
