Lasagna is one of my favourite meals. But with all that pasta and sauce it’s more of a weekend “treat meal”. Here’s my Low Carb Lasagna – a healthier take on the dish that you can enjoy any day of the week!
WHAT YOU NEED:
2 Cups Spinach
Turkey Mince or Round Steak Mince (I used 350grms)
1 Tsp Cumin
2-3 Cloves Garlic
1 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
Himalayan Pink Salt and Pepper
1 Jar of Janet’s Just Delicious Classic Tomato Sauce (Alternatively you can make your own tomato sauce using passata, tomato puree and seasoning).
Small Handful Low Fat Mozzarella
WHAT TO DO:
1: Preheat oven to 180C
2: In a pan fry onion and garlic in a little coconut oil and add minced meat of your choice.
3: When browned add the cumin and the tomato sauce. As I mentioned we used the Just Delicious range as they are handmade and 100% natural (found in all Supervalu’s) but you can of course make your own.
4: To make the creamy sauce – mix your cottage cheese and basil in a separate bowl and season with salt and pepper.
5: In a pyrex dish spray a little non stick spray. Slice courgettes thinly lengthways and layer across the bottom.
6: Add a layer of your mince meat, followed by a layer of the cottage cheese.
7: Top with another layer of courgettes followed by a layer of spinach. (Use all the spinach here.)
8: Repeat step 6
9: Add a final layer of courgettes and the rest of the cottage cheese.
10: Cover with tinfoil and bake for 1 hour in the oven.
11: Remove tinfoil, sprinkle the top with low fat mozzarella and place under the grill to brown.
12: Serve and enjoy!
