Taken from my latest book Low Carb Slow Cooker
A family favourite, you can serve on a bed of low carb cauliflower rice or make your own parmesan shells. You can double up the recipe and freeze until needed. This version does not have red kidney beans as most people on Low carb, particularly LCHF/Banting, avoid pulses.
