Ingredients

  • 1/2

    pound ground turkey

  • 1

    cup lasagna tomato sauce (see below)

  • 1

    cup low fat cottage cheese or ricotta or cream cheese

  • 1

    cup partially skim mozzarella, shredded

  • LASAGNA SAUCE:

  • 1

    tablespoon oil

  • 1

    onion, diced

  • 2

    cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1/2

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1/2

    teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed (optional)

  • 1

    (15 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1

    tablespoon tomato paste (optional)

  • 1

    teaspoon Italian seasoning or oregano

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 1/2

    teaspoon paprika (optional)

  • 1

    tablespoon balsamic vinegar (optional)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1

    tablespoon basil, chopped (optional)

Directions

Cook the turkey, add the tomato sauce and simmer until it thickens a bit, about 3-5 minutes. Spread the cottage cheese over the bottom of a baking dish, followed by the sauce and finally the mozzarella. Bake in a preheated 350F oven until the top is a light golden brown and the sides are bubbling, about 15-20 minutes. Option: Use ground beef or Italian sausage instead of ground turkey or omit the meat entirely. Lasagna Sauce: Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add the onion and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and fennel and cook until fragrant, about a minute. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, bay leaf, paprika, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, simmer until until it thickens, about 5 minutes, and then mix in the basil and remove from heat.
