Ingredients

  • 1 Head Cabbage
  • 1 Lb Sweet Italian Sausage casing removed
  • 1 Yellow Onion chopped finely
  • 4-6 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 - 24 Ounce Jars of Low Carb Spaghetti Sauce no sugar added
  • 2 Teaspoons Oregano dried
  • 32 Ounces Ricotta Cheese
  • 2 Cups Parmesan Cheese divided
  • 4 Cups Mozzarella Shredded Divided
  • 1 Cup Fresh Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Large Egg

Instructions

  • Prepare. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a 9x13” casserole dish with cooking spray.
  • Cabbage. Quarter the head of a cabbage (1), then cut each quarter into ½” strips. Place strips of cabbage into a large pot with a little water, and boil the cabbage until tender (about 10 minutes). Place cabbage in a colander and allow it to drain. Place paper towels on top to absorb as much liquid as possible from the cabbage.
  • Red sauce. Meanwhile, cook Sweet Italian Sausage (1 Lb) in a large skillet, over medium heat. Break sausage into small pieces with the back of your spoon as it cooks. Once cooked, remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Remove most of the fat from the pan, leaving only 2 tablespoons (if there aren’t 2 tablespoons of fat, add olive oil). Add the onion (1 chopped finely) and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Add minced garlic (4-6 cloves) and continue to cook until it’s fragrant about 1 minute. Remove veggies from heat and stir in your cooked sausage and spaghetti sauce (2-24 Ounce Jars). Set aside.

  • Layer the ingredients. Start with 1/2 of the red meat sauce, then a layer of cabbage, then 1/2 of the ricotta mixture. Repeat 1 more time, or until you’ve used all the ingredients. Top the lasagna with the remaining parmesan (1 cup) and mozzarella (2 cups).
