I was really impressed with myself because I actually did not use more cheese than it called for. 🙂 I am a huge cheese lover – so that’s a big accomplishment for me. :p And I didn’t even miss it!
I served this with a small side salad. The recipe says it makes 9 servings, but I cut it into 8 slices.
1 lb ground turkey
1.5 c onion, chopped
16 ou fat free cottage cheese
1 egg (or 1/4 c egg substitute)
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 T dried parsley
10 ou chopped spinach
8 lasagna noodles (I used no boil)
8 ou shredded mozzarella
2 cloves garlic, minced
26 ou low fat marinara
1/4 t pepper
1 T olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 and prepare with cooking spray a 9×13 baking dish.
Mix cottage cheese, egg, Parmesan, parsley, spinach and pepper in a medium bowl. Set to the side.
Heat oil in a large pan – add the turkey, onion and garlic and cook until turkey is cooked through. About 7-8 minutes.
Add 5 cups of marinara sauce to the turkey – cook for another 5 minutes.
Spread remaining marinara in the bottom of the baking dish, and arrange 4 lasagna noodles over top.
Spread the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles, followed by 1/2 of the mozzarella and 1/2 of the turkey mixture. Arrange 4 more noodles, then the other 1/2 of the turkey and the rest of the mozzarella.
