Turkey and Spinach Pasta-less Lasagna

Submitted by: MOTOVILOVA

Introduction

I made this as a quick dinner. I didn't want to use lasagna noodles because they are very calorie dense, so I omitted them and made a pasta-less turkey lasagna. You can add mushrooms too, but I forgot. I made this as a quick dinner.
