“My husband created this recipe as a great alternative to traditional lasagna because it substitutes cottage cheese for ricotta and has a ton of veggies. My kids love it, so we eat it almost once a week!”

Original recipe yields 1 9x13-inch pan

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with one teaspoon olive oil.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the turkey, mushrooms, basil, oregano, and black pepper; cook and stir until the turkey is no longer pink and the mushrooms have released their liquid, 10 to 15 minutes. Break the turkey meat into crumbles as it cooks. Stir in the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and spinach. Cook, stirring often, until the spinach leaves are wilted, about 5 minutes; turn off burner.
  3. Mix the cottage cheese, egg whites, parsley, and Parmesan cheese in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  4. Place 4 lasagna noodles into the prepared baking dish, overlapping if necessary, and pour half of the turkey mixture over the noodles. Spread half the zucchini slices over the meat sauce, and top with half of the cottage cheese mixture. Spread half of the mozzarella cheese over the cottage cheese layer. Repeat layers, starting with 4 more noodles, the remaining meat sauce, zucchini slices, cottage cheese mixture, and remaining mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake the lasagna in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbling and the cheese is melted and browned, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

This lasagna is so easy that we make it at least twice a month. My kids love it and don't even notice the difference between the ingredients!

This was so tasty! I didn't have oregano, so I left it out. I did use regular Parmesan cheese and mozerella. The flavor is quite good, and I feel like it's still healthy, even with the regular cheese...Would make again! Gave a piece to my mother and she really liked it too (very picky!)

Light - yes, very light on flavour. Delicious - NOT. Ground turkey does not have a good flavour. Tomato sauce lacking in flavour.
