 I love easy dinners like this Keto Garlic Parmesan Sausage Skillet. They’re easy, packed full of healthy veggies and fat, and super tasty. For this one I’ve used our favorite Kiolbassa Smoked Meats Roasted Garlic Smoked Sausage and man, paired with the roasted garlic cream sauce this skillet just can’t be beat. 

Kiolbassa sausages really are our absolute favorite and they’re PACKED with flavor. To find them near you use this handy store locator

You can use whatever vegetables you have on hand, I really can’t think of a vegetable that wouldn’t go well in this making this a perfect Farmer’s market style dinner. I’ve opted for Brussels sprouts, turnip, bell pepper, zucchini, summer squash, onion, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes. Asparagus would also be great as would broccoli or eggplant. 

The parmesan cream sauce gets a kick with roasted garlic and coats the vegetables and sausage perfectly. You don’t need a thickener here since we’re using cream cheese which creates a perfectly silky and thick sauce. As always, if you’re sauce is indeed too thin for some reason a pinch of xanthan gum will do the trick to thicken it up.
