Tasty; the bay leaf in the white sauce gave it a nice flavor. I added about a half pound of ground turkey breast with the sausage for a little extra protein. Served with a tossed green salad.

Spicy sausage gives Turkey Sausage and Spinach Lasagna some kick. And three cheeses--ricotta, mozzarella, and Parmesan--make this lasagna wonderfully indulgent.
