CAN THIS BE DAIRY FREE?
You can swap the dairy mozzarella cheese as well as the ricotta to make this easy keto skillet lasagna dairy free. I've found dairy free shredded cheese to replace the mozzarella, made with almond milk as well as cashew milk, at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. I've not found a dairy free ricotta cheese, but if you could find a dairy free cottage cheese that would be a great alternative for ricotta.

Quick Keto Skillet Lasagna
A breezy and easy dish, full of all of the familiar flavors and textures of a traditional lasagna...in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the carbs. Enjoy!
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 clove garlic peeled and chopped
- 1.5 lb ground beef
- ½ tsp Italian seasoning
- ¼ tsp fresh basil (with some extra for garnish)
- 14 ounces marinara sauce unsweetened or tomato passata
- 4 cups green cabbage chopped into 1" squares
- ½ cup mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup ricotta cheese
- sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese and basil leaves optional
Heat a large skillet over high heat and add your olive oil.
Cook the onions and garlic for a minute or two until they are translucent and fragrant.
Season the ground beef and cook until browned and well done.
Add the seasonings (Italian seasonings and basil) to the beef and stir through.
Place the sauce in the pan and stir through the beef until the sauce is combined well.
Add the cabbage squares to the pan and stir gently until they are incorporated.
(It may look like there is too much cabbage but be patient, as it cooks it will reduce in volume.)
Cook over a gentle heat for a further 15 minutes, until the cabbage is just tender.
Stir the mozzarella through the sauce and then dollop the ricotta over the top.
Finish with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and a scatter of fresh basil leaves. Stir to combine all the cheese and enjoy!
Storage: The lasagna will keep in a covered container in the fridge for up to one week. It can also be portioned and frozen.
