Ingredients

    Ground Turkey
    1 onion
    1 squash
    1 zuchinni
    1 red pepper
    1 crown of brocolli
    baby carrots (14)
    1 cup uncooked spinach
    wheat lasagna noodles (9...3 noodles for each layer)
    28 oz can of diced tomatoes
    1 casserole dish

Directions

1. Prep your lasagna noodles by boiling them according to the directions on the package.
2. boil your brocolli and carrots to desired tenderness. When finished chop up and add to a mixing bowl
3. Cook your onion and turkey meat and then add to mixing bowl with carrots and brocoli.
4. After you finish cook the turkey, add the red pepper, squash, zuchinni, and spinach to the pan and saute for 5-6 minutes. When done add to mixing bowl.
5. mix the turkey meat and all cooked veggies really well (dont add tomatoes just yet!)

No to prep lasagna...go ahead and preheat to 350 degrees.
1. Spread half or a little bit more of the tomatoes along the bottom of the pan. Then add your first layer of noodles...3 noodles per layer!
2. Add your first layer of the turkey and veggie mixture (should be half of what you have in your bowl).
3. Now take the ricotta cheese and form small 6-8 (maybe 1/2 inch) balls and place on top of mixture. Then add 1/3 cup of the veggie cheese.
4. Add second layer of noodles.
5. Repeat step 3 with adding mixture and cheeses (you should use all of the meat and veggie mixture on this step as well as the ricotta. Make sure to save some of the veggie cheese for the top!)
6. Add last layer of noodles
7. On top of the last layer spread out the remaining tomatoes, then top with the last 1/3 cup of veggie cheese.

You can also garnish with parsley or add other herbs like basil if you would like to add a little more flavor.

Cook on 350 for 45 minutes.
