How about a little Lasagna?


I found a wonderful lasagna recipe that is low carb!  I used the Walden’s farm sauce so it was actually lower calories and carbs then what they post it as!  Try it, you will like it!   It is always good to mix-up your exercise routines to keep your body guessing so go out and try a boot camp or a new cardio class!!  But, as always, please consult your physician before youbegin any exercise program!  Good luck everyone!
SPINACH LASAGNA
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
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)

Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the 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 the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the spinach. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a greased, 8 x 8″ glass baking pan. Spread the 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

  1. Hi Jerome, thanks for visiting my blog and for your encouragement and motivation. I have gained back 10 pounds but I’m getting back on track to lose that again. I just tried on some clothes that have gotten tight so I’m not going up a size so I am motivated to loose the 10 pounds. Looks like i need to be checking into your blog more often. This recipe looks great.
