  • 1 pound penne pasta of choice
  • 1 5 oz bag baby spinach
  • 24 oz. seasoned marinara sauce
  • 8 oz. soft havarti cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded


  • Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Add the the yellow onions and sautee in avocado oil for 10-15 minutes until they start to brown. Add the ground lamb to the sauteeing onions, and cook until it is no longer pink. Set the lamb and onion mixture aside.
