1 lb, ground turkey
16 oz, low fat cottage cheese
1 cup fresh mushrooms, diced
1 cup of spaghetti sauce
1 cup cheddar cheese
3 medium zucchini squash
Garlic powder, Onion powder and any other Italian seasonings
Cut off the ends of the zucchini and slice length-wise into thin strips. Cut the mushrooms into small pieces. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, cottage cheese, mushrooms, and spaghetti sauce. Leave the cheddar cheese aside for now.
Lightly spray a 13 x 9 glass pan with cooking spray. Across the bottom of the pan put one layer of the zucchini strips (similar to pasta noodles in traditional lasagna). Then add a layer of the cottage cheese, turkey, and mushroom mixture. Usually, two layers of each are possible based on the size of the zucchini. Finally, top with cheddar cheese and bake for approx 30 minutes to cook the zucchini and melt the cheese.
Divide the pan into 8 portions and serve.
Number of Servings: 8
