Lasagna Night

Made a yummy ground turkey lasagna last week, and snuck in some shredded carrots, spinach, and chopped mushrooms, too!
I just layered lasagna noodles in a casserole dish with tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, and shredded mozzarella cheese, as well as the mixture of cooked ground turkey with the veggies.

It turned out really well, but I tried those no boil lasagna noodles, and I don't like them. They aren't cooked all the way yet, so during cooking I think they sucked up all the moisture in the sauce, veggies, and ricotta, because once baked, there wasn't a whole lot of sauce or moisture to the layers. Plus, I probably cooked it a bit too long overall, the already-cooked ground turkey was a little dry, and the cheese on top was a little too browned.
That's what I'll change next time.
But, I hadn't made lasagna in forever, so it wasn't bad! I like that it was healthier, too.

Also served it with Trader Joe's cheesy garlic bread, sold in the freezer section....SO GOOD! very garlicky, but I love it.

So there. Lasagna.

  1. You need to mix the shredded cheese with the ricotta, then add an egg or two. That should fix the dryness issue. Yummy!
