A keto sausage pasta bake recipe made with fermented beef sticks from Paleo Valley. Topped with a homemade melty dairy-free cheese.
We all know how important fermented foods are to the health of our gut, the strength of our immune system (especially during cold and flu season), and in boosting our energy throughout the winter months. As the weather gets colder and colder, I haven’t been able to motivate myself to eat the volume of keto-friendly fermented foods that my body is used to (the cold ones especially…) which is where today’s recipe comes to the rescue!
I used Paleo Valley’s fermented beef sticks in today’s keto casserole. Each stick contains 1 billion probiotic CFUs, providing your body with beneficial bacteria in each keto pasta bake serving.
Paleo Valley’s gut-friendly sticks are gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, GMO-free, free of chemicals, additives, dyes, preservatives, with 0 carbs and absolutely no sugar. Plus, they’re made with the highest keto quality ingredients.
If you decide to whip up a batch of this pasta bake and you want to use Paleo Valley sausage to boost your intake of beneficial probiotics, Healthful Pursuit peeps receive 20% off Paleo Valley fermented beef sticks.
