This recipe has no noodles! The noodles are swapped with tender cabbage leaves and it’s a pretty awesome replacement if I say so myself. I adapted my Zucchini Lasagna recipe and my hubby actually likes this Cabbage Lasagna even better!

It’s a large meal so you can enjoy for dinner and have left overs for another day!

Cabbage Lasagna (Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free)
- 1 pound green cabbage
- 2 pounds grass fed ground beef
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 cups marinara sauce divided
- 16 ounces ricotta cheese
- 2 cup mozzarella shredded, divided
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
- 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt to pot once boiling. Cut the cabbage into quarters and cut the stem off and place into boiling water. Boil for 10 minutes or until outer leaves look translucent and tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
Cook ground beef in oil in a large skillet until browned completely. Add garlic, salt and pepper and 1 cup of marinara sauce. Set aside.
In a bowl combine ricotta cheese, 1 cup mozzarella (save the other cup for topping), eggs, seasonings and parmesan. Set aside.
To assemble in a 9 by 13 casserole dish:
Lay cabbage leaves to cover the bottom of the dish. Spread half the cheese mixture over the cabbage leaves.
Spread half the meat mixture over the cheese.
Lay more cabbage slices over the meat and repeat again with the rest of the cheese and meat mixture. Finish with the final slices of cabbage.
Top with 1 cup marinara sauce and 1 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake 30 minutes covered then uncovered for 10 minutes. Give it a quick 5 minute broil if you like a crispier topping.
