What is in Keto Skillet Lasagna?

The dish is made without any complicated ingredients and you should be able to find all of them at your local grocery store.  Skillet Lasagna is made with ground beef, Italian sausage, an onion, spices and herbs, cheese, and marinara sauce.  I recommend that you use grass-fed beef if at all possible.  

This dish would be excellent served with a side salad to provide some veggies and still keep the sugar (think carbohydrates) content low.

Yield: 6 servings

Skillet Lasagna

This baked lasagna ditches the noodles to bring the savory Italian flavors of the dish to the forefront.  The two types of meat add
bulk to the meal, so it’s just as filling as its “carby” counterpart.  The cheese mixture adds that classic lasagna taste to this dish, but if you don’t like ricotta, simply swap it out with full-fat cottage cheese to keep that creamy taste.  To add a big crunch, feel free to top with crushed cheese crisps or crushed pork rinds.

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes


  • 1 pound 80/20 ground beef
  • ½ pound Italian ground sausage
  • ¼ cup chopped peeled white onion
  • 1 ½ cups low-carb marinara sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, divided
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder, divided
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a 12” cast-iron skillet (or other oven-safe equivalent) over medium heat, brown ground beef and sausage over medium heat until no pink remains, about 15 minutes.  Drain the excess fat and return to heat.
  3. Add onion to the pan and sauté with meat until onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes.  Add marinara sauce, ½ teaspoon oregano, and ½ teaspoon garlic powder and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix ricotta, ½ cup mozzarella, 1/3 cup Parmesan, and the remaining oregano and garlic powder until combined.
  5. Turn off the heat and spread the meat around the pan to form an even layer.  Place spoonfuls of the cheese mixture on top of the meat mixture, pushing them down with the spoon to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Sprinkle the top of the remaining mozzarella and Parmesan.  Bake for 20 minutes until bubbling and the top begins to turn golden.  Garnish with parsley.  Serve warm.
