Calories 460kcal


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion small, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1.5 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp fresh basil with some extra for garnish
  • 14 ounces marinara sauce unsweetened or tomato passata
  • 1 cup fresh spinach chopped
  • 4 cups cabbage chopped into 1" squares
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese


  • Heat a large skillet over high heat and add your olive oil.
  • Cook the onions and garlic for a minute or two until they are translucent and fragrant.
  • Season the ground beef and cook until browned and well done.
  • Add the seasonings (Italian seasonings and basil) to the beef and stir through.
  • Place the sauce and the spinach in the pan and stir them through the beef until the spinach has wilted and the sauce is combined.
  • Add the cabbage squares to the pan and stir gently until they are incorporated. (It may look like there is too much cabbage but be patient, as it cooks it will reduce in volume.)
  • Cook over a gentle heat for a further 15 minutes, until the cabbage is just tender.
  • Stir half of the Parmesan through the sauce and then dollop the ricotta over the top.
  • Finish with a sprinkle of the remaining Parmesan and a scatter of fresh basil leaves. Stir to combine all the cheese and enjoy!


Storage: The lasagna will keep in a covered container in the fridge for up to one week. It can also be portioned and frozen.
