Submitted by: ARASIRSUL

Ingredients

    1 jar spaghetti sauce (the nutrition info assumes Classico Tomato and Basil)
    1 lb Turkey Sausage (the nutrition info assumes Shady Brook Farms)
    1 Package fresh spinach
    1 onion
    1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
    2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella
    12 whole grain lasagna noodles (Ronzoni Healthy Harvest)
    1/4 cup red wine

Directions

Prepare lasagna noodles according to the package directions.

Remove the sausage from casings and brown it. Put that in a large bowl with the jar of spaghetti sauce and the ricotta cheese and combine, and caramelize the onions in the pan you just got done with the sausage. Once the onions are about how you want them, add 1/4 cup of red wine to the skillet and then add the spinach and cover for a few minutes-- the wine will both deglaze the pan and steam the spinach.

Add the veggies to the bowl, combine well, and build the lasagna, alternating layers of sausage/sauce/veggie mixture with the lasagna noodles. Bake covered for 40 minutes at 350, then scatter the mozzarella on top and broil uncovered for another five minutes to melt the cheese on top.

Makes 12 servings.
