Turkey-Spinach Lasagna

    This will now be my "go to" lasagna recipe. I used lean ground beef (7%) as we are not ground turkey fans and the fat content was the same anyway. My husband is very picky about his lasagna as it is his favorite food. We all thought this was a winner - and it sneaks in more veggies for the kids which is always a winner.

    Really good! I made it for my In-laws and everyone loved it. I used Low fat Ricotta because I already had it. Came out delicious but a little watery for what ever reason. Will make again!

    Have made this recipe twice now to rave reviews each time.

    My husband and I loved this recipe! It was good and easy to make. It actually made 12 servings instead of 9...and those were generous portions! I followed the recipe almost exactly but instead of cooking the lasagna noodles I just put them in dry and let them cook in the oven. I also used an italian seasoning mix instead of parsley. There are so many other ingredients you could add to this and it would be equally delicious.

    This was very tasty indeed. However, mine came out very wet despite being careful to drain the spinach thoroughly. I will definitely cut the sauce back quite a bit next time I make this.

    My husband and I loved this recipe. For Lasagna it wasn't to hard or involved to prepare. We loved the fresh light flavors of one of our favorite comfort foods. We substituted white lasagna noodles for whole wheat and also the cottage cheese for low fat ricotta cheese which has the same calories value. This was very good. I would highly recommend this recipe.

    Delicious. However, I made some modifications: I seasoned the onion/turkey mixture with salt/pepper and little Italian seasoning. I then added the drained spinach to the turkey mixture (instead of the cheese mixture) before adding sauce. I think this helps keep the dish from getting watery and improves the turkey flavor. I used less sauce - about 26 oz with the turkey mixture. Used 2 REAL eggs and nonfat ricotta instead of cottage cheese. Also....no cook/boil lasagna noodles makes life much easier. Enjoy....

    This is a great lasagna recipe. After making it numerous times as written, I decided to tweak it to our liking. I add a layer of sliced mushrooms to half the lasagna (husband hates them). I decided to use only one jar of spaghetti sauce and add the entire jar to the ground turkey because we like our lasagna less saucy. I use Target's brand of whole wheat oven ready lasagna noodles that don't need to be boiled ahead of time. This freezes well and the leftovers are delicious!

    Delicious!! My 4 year old daughter who hates to eat anything with "green stuff" in it, ate every single bite with a Yummy in between. I will definitely make this again.

    Great recipe! Really easy to make, very tasty, and enough to last for a few meals. I love lasagna and its great having a healthy option. I didn't change a thing. Super fresh tasting.

    This is, by far, the best lasagna that I have ever made. For the marinara sauce, I used a simple tomato and basil sauce and it added just the right amount of sweetness. I made two 8x8 dishes and cooked covered for about 30 min and then uncovered for 10 min. I will definitely make this again!

    Tasty for a healthier version of lasagna. My oldest teenage son did not like the spinich layer and chose to eat around it instead. I couldn't find low-fat marinara sauce so I used the plain Kroger Private Selection brand instead. I also used whole wheat uncooked lasagna noodles and they turned out fully cooked. I used a whole egg instead of egg substitue to prevent any waste. I used more of the low fat mozerella cheese and ended up having to tent foil over it until the end of the cooking process to prevent the cheese from burning anymore than it already did. Also, I did follow one the reviews posted and added sliced baby bella mushrooms to half of the dish. All-in-all it was good and I've got plenty of leftovers.. hope it freezes well.

    So easy and delicious! I used oven-ready noodles and a jar of marinara sauce with mushrooms (Newman's Own was on sale). I also ran out of dried parsley so substituted 1 TBSP of italian seasoning and tasted great! Served it with a side of salad with my favorite dressing from this recipe: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/grilled-steak-with-baby-arugula-parmesan-salad-10000001988526/

    A great lasagna recipe! Filling and delicious. I subbed low fat ricotta for the cottage cheese and used oven ready noodles. I also only used one jar of sauce and that was plenty! Will be making again!

    Loved it! Very simple to make. Did use ricotta & regular mozzarella cheese.. definitely would make again.

    Fantastically delicious...the day after! As with most recipes with tomatoes, it always taste better the next day after all those flavors mingle. I used 1 pound of extra lean ground turkey and two hot italian turkey sausage links; crumbled and browned with lean ground turkey (the husband must SEE the meat). Used only 6 oven ready lasagna noodles, a 16 ounce bag of frozen spinach. Combined the fat-free cottage cheese with 1/4 cup non-fat plain greek yogurt, used romano instead of parmesan and as another reviewer did use dried italian herb seasoning in place of dried parsley flakes. Served with a simple green salad with vinaigrette.
