Do you have a great lasagna recipe?

I would like a recipe that includes vegetables and ground turkey. Do you have a good one or one that you think will adapt well? I'm trying to make it healthy.

  • YES!!! I use whole wheat noodles and the recipe is right on the back. All I do differently is add cottage cheese in place of ricotta (it's yummy), ground turkey in place of the beef and I chop up veggies like carrots, celery, onion, anything very small and add it to the sauce! It's great and easy

  • To make it really healthy, use tofu instead of at least half of the ricotta; use whole wheat noodles instead of whit; use lentils instead of the meat; use sliced of eggplant or zucchini (or both) instead of some or all of the noodles;

  • I would use ground turkey, spinach, fat-free cottge cheese, and shredded Swiss cheese. I sometimes add finely shredded carrots to the spagetti sauce, too.

  • Brown your ground turkey with some italian seasoning sprinkled in. Add a jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce. In a bowl, mix together 30 oz part skim ricotta cheese, 1/4 cup FRESH shredded parmesan, 2 cups washed and drained spinach, and an egg. Combine well. Layer your cooked noodles, ricotta mixture, and sauce mixture, and then repeat. Finish with a layer of noodles on top, spread with the remaining sauce and topped with 1/2 cup part skim mozzarella. Bake as you normally would. You get a healthy dose of vegetables from the spinach.
