Cast Iron Skillet – Cast iron skillet are essential when you have a stovetop recipe, but also need them for baking or finishing baking in the oven. Having this cast iron skillet creates a fantastic sear on meats and other ingredients while keeping the heat nice and even.

You can swap the dairy mozzarella cheese as well as the ricotta to make this easy, dairy-free keto skillet lasagna. I found dairy-free shredded cheese to replace mozzarella, made with almond milk as well as cashew milk, at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. I haven’t found any dairy free ricotta cheese, but if you could find dairy free cottage cheese it would be a great alternative to ricotta.

peeled and chopped
(with a little more for garnish)
unsweetened passata or tomato
cut into 1 “squares
sprinkle with grated Parmesan and basil leaves
Heat a large pan over high heat and add your olive oil.
Cook the onions and garlic for a minute or two until translucent and fragrant.
Season the ground beef and cook until golden brown and cooked through.
Add the seasonings (Italian seasonings and basil) to the beef and mix.
Place the sauce in the saucepan and stir through the beef until the sauce is well combined.
Add the cabbage squares to the pan and stir gently until incorporated.
(It may seem like there is too much cabbage, but be patient, as it will shrink in volume as it cooks.)
Cook over low heat for another 15 minutes, until the cabbage is just tender.
Stir the mozzarella into the sauce, then pour the ricotta on top.
Finish with a pinch of Parmesan and a little fresh basil leaves. Stir to combine all the cheese and enjoy!
