  • 5 Roma tomatoes or 2 cups low-sodium marinara sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 pound 95% lean ground beef
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • olive oil spray or cooking spray
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, sliced lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick slices
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
  • garnish: fresh basil, sliced green onion

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to broil
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Place the tomatoes on the baking sheet and broil until the outsides of the tomatoes have browned and blistered, 6 to 8 minutes
  4. Set the oven to 400°F
  5. To a nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and garlic
  6. Cook for about 2 minutes to flavor the oil, being careful not to burn the garlic
  7. Add the oregano, sage, and rosemary and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes
  8. Add the beef to the skillet, breaking it up as it cooks
  9. Cook it until nearly all the meat is brown, about 5 minutes
  10. Add the roasted tomatoes to the skillet and gently mash them to create a tomato sauce
  11. Stir the sauce in with the meat and continue to break up the meat with a spatula until there are no large chunks left
  12. Remove from the heat and allow the sauce to thicken
  13. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  14. In a bowl, whisk the ricotta together with the egg white
  15. Spray a cast-iron skillet or 9-by-13-inch casserole dish with olive oil or cooking spray, then add enough slices of sweet potato to cover the bottom in a single layer
  16. Add one-third of the meat sauce to make one layer, then top with half of the ricotta mixture
  17. Repeat, using the rest of the ricotta
  18. Top with the remaining sweet potato slices, then a final layer of meat sauce
  19. Top the dish with the mozzarella
  20. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven until the sweet potato slices are soft and the flavors of the layers have melded, about 50 minutes

Remove the Foil .For the final 5 minutes of baking so the cheese browns slightly

  1. Cool for 5 minutes before serving
