We Answered:I adore this lasagna! It's a little time consuming, but it definitely pays off! Makes a lot, but tastes wonderful reheated also!
9 whole wheat lasagna noodles
1/2 cup onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb ground turkey
1 cup mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 green pepper, deseeded and diced
1 large tomato, diced
3 cups tomato sauce
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
6 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2 cups fat-free ricotta cheese
3 teaspoons dried chives
8 ounces part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350Â°F. Spray a large nonstick frying pan with vegetable cooking spray. Cook onion and garlic for several minutes stirring constantly. Add turkey and cook (crumbling the meat fine) until barely done about 4 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add the green pepper, tomato, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, parsley and pepper and simmer 2-3 minutes. Remove frying pan from heat. While the sauce is cooking, cook noodles in a large pot of boiling water that has been sprayed with vegetable cooking spray until al dente. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water and drain. In a bowl, combine ricotta and chives, mix in spinach. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Arrange 3 lasagna noodles on the bottom of the pan. Spread evenly with one third of the ricotta mixture, then one third of the turkey mixture, and sprinkle with one third of mozzarella. Repeat twice with remaining ingredients. Bake for about 25 minutes or until cheese bubbles. Cool at least 5 minutes before cutting.

We Answered:I love a ground turkey patty recipe with cranberry sauce by Rachael Ray---midnight turkey patties or something from one of her first books. Turkey is dry and needs moistening because it isn't as fatty as ground beef. Try tasteofhome.com's recipe finder and type in ground turkey to get recipes suited for that primary ingredient
