Our house is a big fan of pasta. In small portions. It’s not always a fan of our bodies. It’s a love-hate relationship really.
I love love lasagna but I hate all the time it takes. This is super easy, quick, and picky family approved.

* * To Note
For this I used:
Grass-fed ground beef. Bison, turkey, or other meat could be used.
Organic spaghetti sauce (watch the sugar and added ingredients on the sauce label, the sugar can sneak in).
We use Dreamfields Pasta or gluten-free but any penne could be used.
Any substitutions would alter the sugar and carbs levels of the final numbers listed here
