Blue Ribbon Recipe

This easy low carb dish won't win a beauty contest, but it would take first place based on taste. Seriously yummy! The combination of beef and sausage is a great base for the dish and adds so much flavor. The creamy Alfredo sauce is not only easy but is just the right amount for the recipe. Even if you aren't on a low carb diet, this is a must-try.
