Do you ever have those dishes that you could eat six servings of and be so full but still want more? Lasagna is definitely one of those dishes for me. However, it’s not the healthiest option to be shoveling by the pound into my mouth. That’s why I made this Low Carb Lasagna that’s just meat and cheese. It’s just as delicious as normal lasagna but, it excludes all the unhealthiest parts about the dish.
This Low Carb Lasagna allows you to enjoy all the flavors of traditional lasagna without all the carbs to ruin the fun. Most of the flavor in lasagna comes from the meat and cheese anyways so, you will get the maximum amount of flavor with this recipe. Did I mention how extremely easy this is to make? You will be surprised at the lack of effort it takes, especially in comparison with traditional lasagna.
Low Carb Lasagna | Skillet Lasagna Recipe
Of course, lasagna is traditionally made with layers of pasta, meat sauce, ricotta, and so on. However, as you can see, I didn’t take the traditional route in order to make it a Low Carb Lasagna. When going low carb, pasta is definitely a no-no. There are ways to make your lasagna where you don’t even care that the noodles are missing and this recipe is one of those ways.
The only spice you’ll need for this Low Carb Lasagna is Italian seasoning. Nothing fancy, just a spice you most likely already have in your cabinet. This is made in a skillet which means you don’t have to go through a million steps, layering it into a pan, there’s only two layers, meat and cheese. This should freeze pretty well however, the cheese and flavor of the meat won’t be near as good when reheated.
