Packed with over 100 grams of protein this Low Carb Lasagna Dip recipe is great for any occasion! Watching the game? Tailgating? Need something quick to prep for a party? Miss lasagna? This delicious, easy to make, keto friendly, and healthy dip recipe is for you!
You’re going to start by browning 1 pound of either lean ground beef or turkey. I like 93/7 for this one but anything over 90/10 will work great! If you’re using under 90/10 you may want to consider draining your beef or turkey a bit after browning it.
What does browning mean? It simply means to just cook your ground meat until it’s brown. I do this on the stove over medium heat and it typically takes just a few minutes.
Once your meat has browned add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 2 cups of crushed tomatoes, 1 1/2 teaspoons of minced garlic, 1/4 cup of chopped red onion, 4 tablespoons of tomato paste, and 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
Mix all of those ingredients together and let it simmer on low heat for around 10 minutes.
Low Carb Lasagna Dip Tips
- Want it spicy? Add in some chili sauce!
- Use herbs, spices, and/or seasonings to easily change up the flavor
- Add in more/other vegetables
After simmering take it off the heat and evenly distribute 1 1/2 cups of fat free cottage cheese into the bottom of an oven safe dish or pan (I like using a cast iron skillet).
On top of your cottage cheese add the meat mix that you just prepared followed by 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese.
Bake it on 350F/176C for around 15-20 minutes or until your cheese has melted/is bubbling.
You can eat this low carb lasagna dip by itself, with chips, vegetables, on a low carb bread, over rice or quinoa, and so on. Use whatever fits your macros and let me know your favorite way(s) to eat this in the comments below.
