For the lasagna:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • ½ onion minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 medium head cabbage cored and chopped
  • 24 ounces Rao’s Marinara
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella

For the ricotta topping:

  • 2 cups ricotta
  • ¼ cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the ground beef.
  • Brown the beef until about halfway cooked, breaking it up as it cooks.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the meat mixture and cook, stirring often, until the meat has cooked through.
  • Add the marinara to the meat and stir to combine.
  • Add the cabbage to the skillet and carefully stir to coat the cabbage in the meat sauce.
  • Once the cabbage has cooked down a bit, cover the pan with a lid and continue cooking for 15 minutes over low heat or until the cabbage is as soft as you'd like.
  • Remove the lid and add the mozzarella to the skillet. Stir well to combine.
  • To make the ricotta topping, add the ricotta, Parmesan, garlic, and parsley to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  • Spread the ricotta mixture over the cabbage and cover the pan and cook over low heat for 2 minutes to warm through.
  • Serve immediately.


Use any brand of marinara that you prefer. We prefer Rao's brand because it has no added sugar and tastes amazing.
