Submitted by: RSINDERS


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    8 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated
    1 15-ounce container low-fat ricotta cheese
    1 large egg
    1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
    2 cups chopped onions
    1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds
    1 1/2 pounds lean ground turkey
    2 1.5-ounce packets spaghetti sauce seasoning with mushroom flavors
    1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes with added puree
    1 cup canned low-salt chicken broth
    1/2 cup dry white wine

    9 no-boil lasagna noodles (from one 8-ounce package)
    2 cups (packed) fresh basil leaves


Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix 1 cup mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, egg and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in medium bowl. Heat cooking oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add onions and fennel seeds; sauté 5 minutes. Add beef; sauté 10 minutes, breaking up meat with fork. Mix in seasoning, then tomatoes, broth and wine. Cover and simmer 8 minutes. Season sauce to taste with pepper.

Spoon 1 1/3 cups sauce over bottom of 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Place 3 noodles over sauce. Drop half of ricotta cheese mixture by tablespoonfuls evenly over. Top with half of basil leaves, some mozzarella cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Continue layering with 3 noodles, 2 cups sauce, remaining ricotta cheese mixture, remaining basil, some mozzarella cheese and remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese. Finish with 3 noodles, 2 cups sauce and remaining mozzarella cheese (reserve remaining sauce for another use). Cover with foil; place on baking sheet.

Bake lasagna until heated through, about 1 hour. Uncover; let stand 15 minutes. Cut lasagna into squares.

    the spice package makes this too salty and it would be much better with a whole wheat lasagna noodle. - 3/23/07
