Ground Turkey and Spinach Lasagna

Ground Turkey and Spinach Lasagna

Healthy lasagna? My dream come true? Absolutely. Mat was complaining about having lasagna for dinner (it’s not his favorite meal), buuuuut as soon as he took a bite, he freaked out. He said it was the best lasagna he’s ever had. Can it possibly beat Costco’s frozen lasagna? You’ll have to make it and find out 😉

This was my first time making lasagna from scratch and it wasn’t nearly as much work as I thought it would be. It took me less than 20 minutes to get everything in the oven. Yay for quick meals!

If you’re looking for a secret to make ground turkey taste just as good as ground beef, I always season my meat with Lawry’s Seasoning Salt. Mmm, such nice flavor.

I topped our lasagna with Parmesan cheese (because we always always have some in our house), but the recipe I saw on Skinny Mom recommends Mozzarella. I’m sure both are delicious.

ingredients:
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 jar pasta sauce (23 oz) or use homemade
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 3 tbs Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 6 cups spinach, chopped
  • 2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella or parmesan
  • fresh parsley to top
instructions:
  • Cook lasagna noodles according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Saute onions with ground turkey and minced garlic until turkey is browned. (I add seasoning salt here)
  • Add pasta sauce and Italian Seasoning. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Chop fresh spinach and mix in with ricotta cheese.
  • In baking dish, arrange 1/3 of your noodles. Top with 1/3 of the ricotta/spinach mixture, then 1/3 of the meat mixture. Top with 1/3 of mozzarella (or parmesan).
  • Repeat the above step twice, ending with the last of the mozzarella.
  • Bake for 30 minutes and top with fresh parsley.
