Turkey and Asparagus Roll Up Casserole is great to make ahead of time for those crazy days when you’re convinced you can’t get dinner to the table before 10 pm. It reheats well, so you can prepare it a day ahead and refrigerate until ready to use. This Low-Carb Gluten-Free recipe calls for a homemade cheddar sauce, but if you are short on time and have a jarred sauce that you’re comfortable with, feel free to use it.

  1. How could I change this delicious recipe into a low salt one?…can’t…well here goes….replace the slices of turkey with spinach…..the cheese with Swiss and no salt fresh mozzarella….1983mg of sodium per serving!…This is like eating processed food that is unhealthy because you cannot get rid of the turkey as it would now be called spinach ( or Swiss chard) wraps.
