Ingredients

  • about 15-20 cooked cabbage leaves cooking instructions above
  • 1 1/2 lb. ground pork
  • 4 medium onions diced
  • 4 large carrots shredded
  • 8 oz. mozzarella cheese sliced thinly or shredded
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, saute the onions in olive oil and butter for 15 minutes on medium heat.
  • Add carrots and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Add ground meat and cook for 10 more minutes, stirring, and breaking the meat into small pieces.
  • Add 1 cup of marinara sauce, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. Stir everything well and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Place 2-3 cabbage leaves on the bottom of medium-sized bowl. Spread a generous amount of meat sauce onto the cabbage leaves, and add some mozzarella.
  • Repeat layers until you ran out of sauce and most of the cheese (reserve a little for topping). Finish with the cabbage leaves.
  • Place a baking tray on top of the bowl and flip the “lasagna cake” onto it.
  • Spread 1/2 cup of marinara sauce on top and bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
  • Take the cabbage lasagna out, spread the remaining 1/2 cup of marinara and add some cheese on top. Bake for another 10 minutes until cheese melts.
  • Let it cool slightly, garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
