Introduction

My family loves pasta. It's comfort food on cold Minnesota days and makes a great Sunday family dinner. But eating at Olive Garden can be a challenge when you're trying to watch your weight, so we make this healthy version at home instead. I love how simple it is - you don't have to cook the noodles first, just put them in dry and they cook while it's baking. Leftovers make great lunches and can even be frozen in single-serve container for future use. My family loves pasta. It's comfort food on cold Minnesota days and makes a great Sunday family dinner.

Tips

Garnish with basil, if you like.


Directions

Sauce:
In a large skillet, brown the ground turkey with the onion. Drain off any liquid. Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, water, pressed garlic cloves, parsley, Italian seasoning, and brown sugar. Salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and set aside.

Cheese Filling:
In a mixing bowl, use a wooden spoon or rubber scraper to combine the ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, parsley, oregano, and basil.

Assembly:
Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Evenly spread half of the sauce on the bottom of the pan. Arrange half of the dry lasagna noodles on top of the sauce. Spread all of the chese filling on top of the noodles. Arrange the remaining dry lasagna noodles on top of the cheese filling. Cover noodles completely with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce. Cover pan with foil and bake at 350 for 60 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for another 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

    Sounds wonderful. I do though wish people would quit rating by 'sounds like' and wait til they taste so I know what they think it 'tastes like' instead, lol. - 11/3/09

    This was DELICIOUS! By far one of the best things I've had on here. The sauce was really good and the whole thing was very quick to make. I was skeptical about not boiling the noodles since they weren't the no bake kind but it worked perfectly! I really can't say enough about this delicious recipe! - 6/23/10

    Wonderful! Just ate it! However, next time I think I will add mushrooms, zucchini, or spinach to it. Always look forward to adding more veggies! - 2/24/10

    I am SO impressed! I added some zucchini, mushrooms and used whole wheat noodles. My husband, who is beyond picky, loved it! - 11/17/12

    This was better than any restaurant lasagna I have ever had. The spices mixed with the ground turkey and made it taste like sausage...minus all the calories. Don't forget to cover the lasagna with foil as this is important to get the pasta soft. We loved this and it's a keeper! - 9/18/12
