This is an assembled "lasagna", with all the lasagna flavors, but created individually in each person's dish, in a fraction of the time. It can also easily be made into spinach lasagna, eggplant lasagna, zucchini lasagna, etc, by putting a vegetable layer in over the meat. If your diet allows, use any kind of whole-grain pasta. This recipe is easily adaptable to family members with different tastes and nutritional needs.


  • ground meat, cooked and drained (1 lb makes about 6 servings)
  • Per Serving:
  • 1/3 C ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 C sugar-free spaghetti sauce
  • 1/4 C shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 T parmesan cheese
  • 1 C cooked spaghetti squash, or other low carb pasta alternative*


1. Cook the "pasta alternative", be it spaghetti squash or something else

2. Cook the meat with salt and pepper to taste. Drain off the fat.

3. Heat the ricotta (microwave works best)

4. Layer in bowl: pasta alternative, ricotta cheese, ground meat, mozzarella, sauce, parmesan.

Nutritional Information (with spaghetti squash): 19 grams ink ecc effective carbohydrate plus 3 grams fiber, 38 grams protein, and 435 calories.

Capitalized ""T"" equates to Tablespoon (think of it at the BIG spoon) and a lower-case ""t"" = teaspoon (the smaller t, the smaller spoon) I hope that helps you. Those are standard North America recipe abbreviations. Just as ""Tbl"" = Tablespoon and ""tsp"" teaspoon. Also ""c"" = cups
