5 Cabbage Recipes - Vegetable lasagna - Recipes with olive oil - Gusto Per Amore

If you try this cabbage lasagna recipe you will be surprised. Everyone knows that cabbages are rich in nutrients but  I didn’t think  they could make the dish so delicious. Cabbage leaves aren’t just a replacement for pasta sheets  to make the ones who follow a low carb diet happier, they give a special touch and make the flavor unique.  This is a great recipe that you can make in special occasion to astonish your guests.

For a lasagna pan of  22x 30 cm and 5 cm depth.


Serves 8

2 organic cabbages (about 1,3 Kg)
400g of shredded mozzarella
100  g of grated Parmesan cheese
400 g of ground beef
300 g of ground pork
5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
200-250g of béchamel sauce.


Separate the cabbage leaves and remove outer ones. Rinse the leaves in cold water being careful not to tear them. Add a little of salt and steam the leaves until they are just soft. Spread out the leaves on a tray and let them cool. Shave down the tough part of the stem at the base of the thickest  leaves using a paring knife, being careful not to cut through the leaf itself.
