  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (26-ounce) bottle fat-free Italian pasta sauce (such as Healthy Choice)
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 cups 1% low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 9 uncooked lasagna noodles

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.

  2. Cook the turkey in a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Add water and pasta sauce; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  3. Combine 2 cups mozzarella, cottage cheese, and next 4 ingredients (cottage cheese through pepper) in a bowl.

  4. Spread 1 cup turkey mixture in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Arrange 3 noodles over turkey mixture; top with 1 1/2 cups turkey mixture. Spread half of cheese mixture over turkey mixture. Repeat layers, ending with the remaining turkey mixture.

  5. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour. Sprinkle with 1 cup mozzarella cheese, and bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Let lasagna stand 10 minutes before serving.
