Recipe Notes

  • You can make this lasagna recipe with chicken or even chicken Italian sausage instead of turkey.
  • The lasagna freezes well.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a large large baking sheet with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and then add turkey. Cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. 
  3. Add tomatoes and basil. If the mixture is too thick, fill tomato can about a quarter full with water. Season with salt and pepper and let simmer 20 minutes. 
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan, parsley, egg and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. 
  5. In the bottom of a large baking dish, spoon a thin layer of sauce. Add a layer of cooked noodles, overlapping them slightly. Spread about a third of ricotta mixture over noodles, top with sauce, then top with a layer of mozzarella. Repeat to make three layers.
  6. Bake until lasagna is bubbling and cheese is melted, about 35 minutes.
