Original Recipe by Linda
Induction Friendly


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons onion, chopped { I use a whole onion }
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder { I use ~ 1/2 tsp of garlic } 
  • 1/2 cup spaghetti sauce { I sub with Great Value pizza sauce as it is lower carb }
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)


  1. Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the fat. 
  2. Mix in the garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until bubbly. 
  3. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. 
  4. Stir until creamy; beat in the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. 
  5. Blend in the spinach. 
  6. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a greased, 8 x 8" glass baking pan. 
  7. Spread the spinach mixture over the meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not completely cover the top, but that's ok. 
  8. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. 
  9. Bake at 350ยบ about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until hot and bubbly. 
  10. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.
