  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Mix the spinach, cottage cheese, and egg in a large bowl.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the onion, garlic, mushrooms, and carrot until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the ground turkey, and stir until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Pour the pasta sauce and water into the skillet. Season with rosemary,oregano, and basil. Simmer sauce for 10 minutes.
  3. Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1/3 of the sauce on the bottom of the pan, and top with 3 noodles. Spoon an additional 1/3 of the sauce on the noodles; top with the spinach mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the mozzarella cheese. Top with remaining 3 noodles and the rest of the sauce. Pour the vegetable juice evenly over the lasagna, and top with the remaining mozzarella. Cover the dish with foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let lasagna rest for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If using regular lasagna noodles, boil them before assembling lasagna and omit the vegetable juice.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Warning: This lasagna recipe needs some essential modifications. 1st, it is very liquidy and I even ommited the water (because I suspected this problem). I also baked it uncovered to try to comp...

This turned out well. The carrots make it kinda sweet and I used a jar of pasta sause that already had basil in it on top of the basil the recipe called for so I will adjust that next time. Bu...

This lasagna was very easy to prepare. Use a deep 9x13 dish, as my 9x13 cake pan overflowed a little. I thought it was a little bland and needed twice the seasonings. My husband had it the fi...

Very tasty my family loved it. Even my youngest daughter( who HATES spinach ) liked it. We had it with salad and garlic bread so it turned into a perfect rounded meal.

I discovered half way in that I was missing cottage cheese, so I omitted that, the egg and the frozen spinach. I also used regular noodles and omitted the water and the tomato-vegetable juice. I...

I haven't made this yet but since several say it is watery-it only could be from NOT draning the spinach. I am betting that you must squeeze the spinach with a paper towel. I would like to see ...

This is exactly what I was looking for in terms of a healthy lasagna. After reading the reviews I used 2 eggs instead of 1, omitted the water and it turned out perfect. I also added more spices....

Very fresh tasting
