What you will need for the main dish:
1 whole tomato diced
1 box of whole wheat lasagna noodles
2 large eggs
1 jar(48-50 oz) of your favorite spaghetti sauce (We prefer organic!)
1 small can of tomato sauce
2 pounds of ground turkey
2 gloves or garlic pressed
2 pounds of ricotta cheese made from part skim milk
2 cups of low fat mozzarella cheese
¼ cup of parmesan cheese
Garlic salt and pepper to season to taste
What you will need for the topping(if desired):
½ cup of low fat mozzarella cheese
1 green onion chopped
10 grape tomatoes diced
¼ cup parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Cook the lasagna noodles as directed on the box, rinse with cold water, drain again, and set to the side
In a large bowl, mix the ricotta cheese, ¼ cup of parmesan cheese, 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, and 2 large eggs slightly beaten. Mix until well blended, and set to the side.
Cook the ground turkey until browned, stirring frequently so that its broken up into small pieces. Drain the meat.
Combine the meat, spaghetti sauce, whole tomato, pressed garlic cloves, garlic salt, and salt and pepper, in a large pot and simmer for about 15 minutes.
In a large baking dish, place a layer of meat sauce on the bottom.
Cover the sauce with a layer of noodles.
Then cover the noodle layer with a layer of the cheese mixture.
Sprinkle some meet sauce over the cheese mixture, then another layer of noodles.
Continue with the layering process, finishing with a layer of noodles covered in sauce.
If desired sprinkle the ½ cup of low fat mozzarella cheese over the top, cover with foil, and place in the oven for 45 min.
After 45 min. remove the foil and bake an additional 15 min. or until the lasagna is bubbling and the cheese is melted.
After you remove the lasagna from the oven, sprinkle the ¼ cup of parmesan cheese, green onion, and grape tomatoes over the top.
Serve hot, and enjoy!
