Yield: 8 servings


  • 9 whole-wheat lasagna noodles

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • 1 pound ground turkey breast

  • 3 cups tomato sauce

  • ½ cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 3 tablespoons Italian seasoning 

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder 

  • 6 cups chopped fresh spinach

  • 2 cups fat-free ricotta cheese 

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain noodles, and rinse with cold water.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 2 minutes. Add ground turkey and cook 5 to 7 minutes more, stirring to break up any large chunks of meat. Stir in tomato sauce, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, black pepper, and garlic powder. Simmer for 2 minutes and season to taste.

  4. Combine spinach, ricotta, and nutmeg in a large bowl.

  5. To assemble, arrange 3 noodles lengthwise in the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Spread with 1/3 the ricotta mixture, 1/3 of the turkey mixture, and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat layers, ending with remaining mozzarella. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.


Recipe Tip

You can kick up the heat with 1 tablespoon of crushed red pepper.
