Three Cheese Turkey Lasagna

One thing A always makes is ziti. For a change, I had him try out lasagna recently. It was so tasty and easy to make. His recipe makes enough for us all to have dinner, A to have lunch for four days, and for me or M2 to have it for lunch once. We had mixed greens salad and French bread on the side. A perfect, filling, dinner of comfort food.


A's Three Cheese Turkey Lasagna
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 T each of garlic and onion powder
  • 1 large jar spaghetti sauce or two regular size jars
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • Half box whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1 small container low-fat ricotta cheese
  • 4 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 9x13 glass pan, sprayed with non-stick spray

Brown ground turkey
Stir together ground turkey, spaghetti sauce, and tomato paste
Cook lasagna noodles per instructions on box

Layer 1/4 of the noodles, then 1/3 sauce mixture, then ricotta
Layer 1/4 of the noodles then remaining sauce mixture

Enjoy!
