George Stella’s Meat Lasagna

If you live a low carb life and you don’t have a George Stella cookbook, you really don’t know what you are missing.  My favorite is Livin’ Low Carb, which happens to be the book this recipe comes from.  This recipe is just as good as any lasagna you have ever had. You will never miss the noodles. I promise.

13X9 in pan

2 T olive oil

2 cups diced celery

1/2 cup diced red onion

2 lbs ground beef

15 oz. s/f tomato sauce

1 t minced fresh garlic

1 t garlic powder

1/2 t salt

1/2 t black pepper

Cheese filling:

15 oz ricotta cheese

16 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese

1 large egg

1/2 t minced fresh garlic

2 t dried Italian seasoning

1 t garlic powder

1/4 t black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add celery and onion and cook until slightly tender.

Add ground beef and cook until browned. Drain excess fat.

Add tomato sauce, garlic, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and simmer for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat.

Mix the ingredients for the cheese filling together in a bowl using half the mozzarella.

Fill the bottom of the baking dish with the meat filling and top with the cheese filling.

Cover the top with the remaining 8 oz of mozzarella.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the top starts to become golden and bubbly.

Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing

I am a low carb fan and have been for over a year now. Before I discovered this way of eating, I was pre-diabetic, had off the charts cholesterol and high blood pressure. With no meds, all of that stuff is normal now. Thank you so much, Dr. Atkins, for showing me such a wonderful way of eating that is delicious, satisfying and healthy! Even if you don't struggle with your weight, I highly recommend you taking on the low carb way of life. The health benefits to doing so are legion! I have a beautiful wife and two of the most adorable children a dad could ask for.

    I didn’t see the net carb counts. Are they in the cookbook?
