Cabbage Lasagna

If you've got a big jar of marinara in your pantry, feel free to use it here instead of the crushed tomatoes. Add it after you've cooked the beef and just let it heat through. You can skip the whole simmering part! We still recommend, however, stirring in some basil and balsamic vinegar.

DIRECTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and ground beef, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until beef is no longer pink, about 6 minutes; drain excess fat. Add crushed tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Bring mixture to boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper then stir in basil. 
  • In a medium bowl, combine ricotta, eggs, and Parmesan.
