1 lb ground turkey
1/2 c onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
24 oz spaghetti sauce (I use Classico)
3/4 c water
2 c cottage cheese, low fat
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1 T parsley
1 pkg. whole wheat lasagna noodles, uncooked
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
1 zucchini, shredded
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped fine
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Brown ground turkey and add onion and garlic. When cooked, add spaghetti sauce and water.
In another bowl, blend the cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and parsley.
Start layering in a casserole dish: 4 or 5 noodles, meat mixture, spinach, cottage cheese mixture, then half of mozzarella cheese. Then more noodles, meat mixture, zucchini, cottage cheese mixture, then the rest of the mozzarella.
Cover with foil and cook for 1 hour. Let sit about 10 minutes before serving.
