Low Carb Lasagna

Lasagna is known as comfort food.  Unfortunately many comfort foods can be high in carbs.  Chef Ben and myself have a fun twist on traditional lasagna that replaces the pasta sheets with Joseph’s Bakery high fiber low carb lavash bread sheets

This is a yummy healthy alternative to traditional lasagna that will convert to SUGAR and get stored as fat!

We made this on a Facebook live that you can watch here!  We do a LIVE cooking segment on our Nutrition page each Tuesday night at 8pm CST!

Here are the ingredients:

1 pack of Joseph’s Lavash bread
6 cans Fire roasted diced tomatoes
16oz container Ricotta cheese
3 lbs. Ground beef
8oz container Grated Parmesan
32 oz. shredded Mozzarella
2-3 tbsp Italian seasoning
2 onions
2 tbsp chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

 

Brown the ground meat with the chopped onions and salt and pepper then drain.

Add the tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper to taste and cook down for 15 minutes.

Spray your 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

Layer a thin layer of meat, making sure the liquid is well-drained from the meat mixture or else you will have runny lasagna. Then spoon on Ricotta cheese, then sprinkle parmesan lightly and a very light layer of Mozzarella. Then put strips of lavash as you would regular lasagna pasta strips. Keep layering until dish is full, usually three full layers.  Then add a little more of the meat mixture on top and top with mozzarella and parmesan and you are ready to bake!

Bake for 30 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.  Add a nice green salad and you have a wonderful balanced meal!

Enjoy!
