    LC(low carb)- Spinach Lasagna

    This is DELISH!!

    SPINACH LASAGNA
    10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
    1 pound ground beef
    2 tablespoons onion, chopped
    1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
    8 ounces cream cheese
    1 egg
    1/8 teaspoon pepper
    4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
    2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)

    Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off fat. Mix in the garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until bubbly. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the spinach. Spread half the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a greased, 8 x 8" glass baking pan. Spread spinach mixture over the meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not completely cover the top, but that's ok. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Bake at 350º about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until hot and bubbly. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.

    Makes 6-9 servings
    Can be frozen

    Can something else be substituted for the cream cheese... like maybe ricotta cheese? I would like to try this for my wife but she's not into the cream cheese Plus I will be substituting ground turkey for the beef.

    I dont see why not AZ!! there is a substitute mehtod to this recipe too, this is how I make it, but let me see what is different int he sub recipe.. I have used Ground turkey before as well as even making it meatless and it is GOOD. I very rarely eat meat, so most things I make meatless if I can.
    I will check out the substitute recipe and see what it says!

    No luck... It just has sausage and stuff .... AZ, if you use Ricotta made add some fresh grated parm and a well beaten egg ot it.. this will just help hold the cheese together more like cream cheese. Truly you can not even tell it is cream cheese, I think it is there for texture. BUt, yeh if someone does not like it you do not want to cook with it..

    SO, use the ricotta, just add the egg and parm to make it stick better...

    Lemme know how she likes it!!!

    I have a recipe for spinach and portabella stuffed shells too-- with Ricotta!!! They have no MEAT and are DELISH!!
