Skillet Lasagna Florentine

This light, protein-packed recipe is brimming with all the classic lasagna flavors but is made with spinach as a stand in for noodles. Keystone Ground Beef, a few ingredients, one pan and you have a meal you can feel great about serving. Besides the delicious taste and convenience of Keystone Meats, this recipe is a great way to keep in line with a low carbohydrate diet.
