Phase 1 friendly mushroom chicken and sausage casserole

Very moist and delicious:)
This is a recipe I found on another blog. I can't recall which one, so I apologize for not giving you much deserved props.  I tweaked it a bit to make it Dr. Poon phase one friendly.  After original post was published, I was informed where I got this was adapted from

You will need:

4 cups of diced, cooked chicken breast
1 pound low fat turkey sausage
1 stalk of celery chopped finely
2 tsp of onion powder
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1/2 pound of mushrooms sliced
8 oz fat free cream cheese spread
16 oz bag of frozen cauliflower cooked and drained well
8 oz Allegro 4 % cheese (I used the Herb and Spices)
1/2 salt and pepper to taste
Paprika sprinkled on top

Brown the sausage with the celery, mushrooms, garlic and onion powder.  Stir in the cream cheese until well blended.  Coarsely chop the cooked cauliflower.  Mix all of the ingredients together and spread into a sprayed 9x13 casserole dish.  Dust the top with paprika.  Baked covered at 350 for 30 minutes.  Uncover and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes until hot and bubbly.  Makes 10 servings.

Really yummy and great to bring for lunches.  I served it with a simple salad.  Enjoy!
