OMG you guys. This recipe is adapted from Tasty.co and we didn’t change much!

You know when you have a recipe saved that looks SOOOOO delicious, but it a little bit time consuming and gets put on the back burner weekend after weekend?….#momlife.

Well this weekend, Jeff described something he was thinking of making, and it kinda meshed with this recipe, that I’ve had a photo of forever. So in my love to watch Jeff cook fashion, I described this amazing dish to him, knowing he’d love it, and make it for all three of US, while I watched and drank wine…Muahahahahaha

 

 

 

Here’s a photo of Haley keeping the cook hydrated..Oh yeah, and it’s Pyjama day at school tomorrow, but Haley wanted to turn it into a night before slumber party as well. There were supposed to be movie snacks with Beauty and the beast, but we were all too full 🙂

Ingredients

for 8 servings (The three of us finished most of this! FYI)

  • 6 potatoes, peeled
  • 2 cups (220 g) grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 lb (455 g) ground beef
  • 14 ½ oz (410 g) diced tomato, 1 can, drained
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped, divided
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) paprika
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 6 cups (240 g) spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup (250 g) ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup (100 g) shredded mozzarella cheese

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
  2. Using a knife or mandolin cut the potatoes into slices ⅛-inch (3 mm) thick.
  3. On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, sprinkle half of the Parmesan cheese and spread until it is evenly covering the parchment paper.
  4. Place the potatoes over the parmesan so each potato is overlapping the previous potato both vertically and horizontally. Continue until the entire pan is filled with potatoes.
  5. Sprinkle to rest of the Parmesan evenly over the potatoes. Season with 1 teaspoon of salt. Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and the potatoes are flexible and slightly crispy.
  6. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the onions, and cook until caramelized, about 15 minutes.
  7. Add the beef break up and mix with the onion until cooked. Mix in the tomatoes, 3 tablespoons of parsley, paprika, 1 teaspoon of salt, and pepper. Stir, cooking until the beef is browned and cooked through. Remove from heat.
  8. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the spinach, cook until wilted. Add 1 teaspoon of salt and the garlic. Stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  9. In a bowl combine the spinach mixture and the ricotta. Set aside.
  10. Evenly spread the spinach mixture over the cooked potato sheet.
  11. Evenly spread the beef mixture over the spinach. Sprinkle mozzarella over the beef.
  12. Take one end of the potato sheet holding the parchment paper begin rolling upward, making sure the ingredients are not coming out the ends.
  13. Once the it is completely rolled place the potato roll on the parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.
  14. Sprinkle with parsley for garnish. Slice and serve immediately.
  15. Enjoy!

Make sure to drain as much liquid out of the Ricotta and the tomatoes, so that it keeps it’s shape while it’s baking. Light ricotta will be a lot dryer!

We roasted a full chicken and removed the meat for the filling instead of using ground beef, but that’s just because we had steak the night before, I’m sure it would be just as good!

We also added black beans, just because we love them

AND we used purple potatoes, just because they are so pretty!

Definitely use all the seasoning that they suggest! 🙂

 

Seriously try this, and let me know what you think! We loved it and will definitely be making it again with new flavor profiles, like Mexican, Greek or Indian! 🙂 MMMMMmmmmm

 

 

 

Moderation Mindset-With Camilla Dempster

camilla DempsterI hope you were able to download my first podcast last week. If you missed it, you can check it out here
Every Wednesday I will be interviewing a new guest who will help you Experience your Potential. If you have someone in mind (maybe you have a great story to share?)  that you think would be an amazing guest, please help connect us!

TODAY, In episode Number 2 I interview Camilla Dempster!

 

Listen Here =======>> #MODERATIONMINDSET

Cam and I discuss everything from abuse in relationships, PCOS, taking leaps of faith eating disorders and how to balance our three brains (Head, Heart and Gut) to make the best possible decisions for ourselves! There are a few swears, so listeners discretion is advised.

Cam teaches women how to grow their own self-respect, live a #moderation247 life and trust themselves again after many moons of diets.

She’s here to take women from a place of restriction and self sabotage to power, confidence and happiness in body, soul and mind.  To give women, just like you, the invitation to define exactly what you want from your health, fitness and lifestyle. Then the ability to choose how you’re going to get there.

She firmly believes that everyone should feel ‘enough’ and empower women to build beautifully functioning bodies.

What you’ll find with Cam is a somewhat messy yet dreamy concoction of multiple facets of what she does and has a deep rooted passion for.  And that’s going to be stuff to do with fitness, nutrition, mindset, pain management, lifestyle tweaks and a rad-ass-tribe of women all looking for the same thing.  Radical self-respect
