This low carb EMEALS recipe was a GREAT alternative to “regular” lasagna, and rather than using pasta to create the layers they used fresh spinach.
Ingredients were: ground beef, bell pepper, onion, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, cottage cheese, egg, spinach and mozzarella.
My embellishments were: Salt, pepper, 5 garlic cloves minced, 1 splenda packet, 1 Tbsp Basil, some additional leftover cheddar cheese I needed to get rid of.
Prep: EASY ! Maybe about 15 minutes. Far less time than the traditional “cook the noodles” business with regular lasagna.
Cook Time: 45 min.
Comments: Recipe called for 3 Tbsp of Italian seasoning, which seemed like too much. I took it down to 1 Tbsp, and added one Tbsp of dried basil. I would have preferred to use 1 can of 15 oz. diced tomatoes for a chunkier sauce, rather than just plain tomato sauce, but really tried hard to not stray away from the original recipe. As you can imagine with the large amount of spinach the lasagna did turn out a little “soupy”. I let it stand for about 10 minutes and after cutting I drained off the excess liquid. The side dish was supposed to be pork rinds, we opted for salad instead.
This one was DELICIOUS, and the fam and I loved it. THUMBS UP EMeals ~
