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!

  2. Oh, Thanks!!!!
