Ingredients:

  • 1 lb (450g) ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce (sugar-free and low-carb)
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8-10 slices of provolone cheese (or any other firm cheese of your choice)
  • Fresh basil leaves, chopped (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until it’s browned and fully cooked. Drain any excess grease.
  3. Add the finely chopped onion and minced garlic to the skillet with the cooked ground beef. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and the garlic becomes fragrant.
  4. Stir in the marinara sauce, dried basil, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes until the flavors are well combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and the egg until smooth and creamy.
  6. Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter or cooking spray.
  7. Layer half of the provolone cheese slices on the bottom of the baking dish, ensuring they cover the surface evenly.
  8. Spread the ricotta cheese mixture over the provolone cheese layer, creating a creamy filling for the mock ravioli.
  9. Carefully spoon the beef and marinara mixture over the ricotta cheese layer, spreading it out evenly.
  10. Layer the remaining provolone cheese slices over the beef and marinara mixture, creating a cheese “top crust” for the mock ravioli.
  11. Bake the Keto Mock Ravioli in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
  12. Once done, remove the baking dish from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  13. Optional: Garnish with freshly chopped basil leaves for added freshness and flavor.

Note: You can customize the filling by adding spinach, mushrooms, or any other keto-friendly vegetables to the ricotta cheese mixture.
