  3. ¼ teaspoon olive oil
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  5. ¼ teaspoon chopped or minced garlic
  6. 1 pound lean ground beef (90%) or extra lean ground turkey
  7. ¼ cup shredded Parmesan
  8. ¼ – ½ cup low sodium chicken broth
  9. 1 large egg
  10. 1 cup cooked brown lentils
  11. 2 cups packed spinach leaves, steamed, drained and chopped

  15. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  16. Salt and freshly ground pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add garlic and all vegetables except spinach and sauté for 4 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
