Lasagna with Turkey Sausage and Spinach

Lasagna with Turkey Sausage and Spinach

Vodka sauce makes a traditional lasagna extra savory, while the turkey sausage & spinach lighten up the recipe. I typically bake a full pan's worth, then freeze the leftovers for my husband to microwave at lunch. ...Or if you prefer a make-ahead recipe, just freeze the assembled pan and bake covered for an additional 15 minutes before sprinkling with the remaining cheese.
