Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    Lasagna Noodles (12)
    1 lb Ground Turkey Sausage (Jennie-O)
    1 Jar Pasta Sauce (I prefer Ragu)
    onions (about a cup chopped)
    garlic (1 or 2 cloves)
    Part Skim Ricotta (8 oz)
    Part Skim Mozz (8 oz) Shredded
    1 package frozen Spinache (10 oz)
    Parsley and Oregano to taste
    Red Pepper to Taste
    Parm Cheese (fresh) Optional

Directions

Prepare the noodles according to the package directions. Drain when al dente and set aside.

Brown Turk Sausage in a skilled with onions and garlin. Add a little red pepper for some kick (to taste!).

Thaw spinach in the microwave until you can work with it. Mix spinach and ricotta in a bowl and set aside.

Open jar of pasta sauce.

Now, lightly grease your 13 X 9 inch dish (make sure you can fit 3 noodles lengthwise into it before you start). Add a couple of spoonfuls of the sauce to the bottom.

Next, start your first layer with noodles. Smear on the ricotta/spinach mix. Next, smear on the pasta sauce. Next sprinkle on the crumbled turkey. Last, sprinkle with your cheese. Add a noodle layer and repeat until you get to the top (3 layers of noodles).

Pop it into a preheated 375 degree oven -- make sure you cover it with foil or an upside down sheet pan for 25 minutes.

After 25 minutes, uncover it and let bake for an additional 25.

Pull it out of the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes.

YUMMY! Enjoy :)

  • I like to use no-salt-added diced tomatoes mixed with an arrabiata sauce, and the turkey Italian sausage always helps to reduce the fat/cholesterol. - 1/27/13

  • This is almost exactly the same recipe that I use, but I use low-fat cottage cheese because my husband doesn't like Ricotta. - 10/28/08
