By now I think you are starting to understand that I believe you should LOVE your body and therefore want to feed it better with awesome good for you ingredients. This Lasagna is a labor of love but well worth the time put into it! There are many healthy benefits to cooking it this way vs the traditional way and as always I promise it is just as delicious!!!
1 to 1 and a half packages of lasagna noodles-WHOLE WHEAT (using whole wheat won’t make you feel all icky and full after like white pasta does)
1 lb lean ground turkey meat
2 sweet sausage links or about 5 oz total
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 and a half cups chopped mushrooms
1 and a half jars of sauce-I used fire roasted organic
24 oz container of 2% cottage cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 cup shredded skim mozzarella
Italian seasonings-I used basil, rosemary, garlic and red pepper flakes
I whole zucchini-peeled and shredded to use as a layer
Cook ground turkey and sweet sausage over med heat in skillet for 10 to 12 min. Add in seasonings, onions and mushrooms for another 5 to 6 min.
Mix cheese mixture-cottage, parmesan and mozzarella in a bowl so it is ready as part of the lasagna assembly line……That is the fun part-putting it all together!!!
Cook your noodles or not depending on what the package says you can do then start to build your lasagna in this order:
Repeat ending with noodles and sauce on top. Sprinkle with a little bit more cheese-but remember this is “healthy lasagna” not “good old-fashioned lasagna” so easy on the cheese on top!!! Bake at 375 for 45 min.
This is great for dinner and then even better for leftovers the next few days!!!!
