Ingredients

    1 lb ground turkey
    1 large onion (I use yellow)
    1 package lasagna noodles
    1 cup Shredded fat-free Mozzarella cheese
    1 jar Prego Chunky Garden Basil and Garlic Sauce (or similar)
    1 28 oz. can diced stewed tomatoes
    1 small can tomato paste
    2-3 cloves garlic
    3 tbsp olive oil
    Dried basil, oregano, rosemary and salt (to taste)

Directions

--Heat oven to 425F
--In large pasta pot, bring water to a boil for the lasagna noodles.
--dice onion and garlic and sautee in olive oil in large skillet or large sauce pan over medium heat. Add some herbs (oregano, rosemary, basil) as desired.
--When onion and garlic are soft and clear, add 1lb ground turkey and brown over medium heat.
--When pasta water is boiling, add 1 package lasagna noodles
--When turkey is browned thoroughly, add can of diced tomatoes, Prego sauce, and tomato paste. Stir and lower to medium low heat. Add 1 tsp sugar to sauce to offset acidity. Add oregano, basil and rosemary to taste. Stir occasionally while noodles cook.
--When lasagna noodles are ready, lay 4 lasagna noodles slightly overlapping on bottom of lightly-greased/sprayed lasagna pan. In my pan, I use a 5th lasagna noodle that I have to cut short to lay across the top of the pan because the pan is longer than the noodles. This means it requires 5 noodles total to complete a layer.
--Poor 1/2 the sauce into lasagna, then sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Follow with a second layer of 4-5 lasagna noodles, slightly overlaying each other and repeat this step with the second 1/2 of sauce and 1/4 cup cheese.
--Add final layer of lasagna noodles. Sprinkle the top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese and herbs as desired.
--Place lasagna uncovered in the oven for 20 minutes.
--Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. I cut my pan 2x/2x into 3 rows of 3 pieces for nine large pieces total, which is the serving size for this recipe.
