1 lb 93% Lean Ground Turkey
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg frozen spinach, thawed & drained
1 jar (25 oz) of pasta sauce (I used Organic Parmesan sauce)
6 lasagna noodles (regular, not the no-cook kind)
1 tub (15 oz) fat free Ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup water
In a 6 quart crock, add some of the meat mixture to the bottom. Top with noodles (I have to break them into smaller pieces), ricotta cheese, and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Repeat this layering until the crock is full and you run out of ingredients (I can get 3 layers in mine). On the top layer put a full cup of mozzarella.
Put the 1/4 cup of water in the pasta sauce jar and shake it around to get the remaining sauce. Pour over the lasagna.
Cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours or until noodles are done and cheese is browned and bubbly. You may need to check on it mid way through cooking and push the top layer down a bit so that it doesn't brown too quickly and everything cooks evenly.
Makes 8 servings.
