Ingredients

  • 1 box Dreamfields Lasagna Noodles
  • 1 pound lean spicy turkey sausage casings removed
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 cups low-sodium marinara sauce (or crushed tomatoes) divided
  • 12 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese (or low-fat cottage cheese)
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
  • 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese shredded, divided
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Lightly spray noodles with nonstick cooking spray when finished to prevent sticking; set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and onion to skillet. Cook 10 minutes or until browned and cooked through, breaking into crumbles, stirring occasionally. Add garlic; cook 1 minute or until fragrant. Drain any excess liquid. Stir in 2 cups of the marinara sauce. Remove mixture from heat; reserve sausage-marinara sauce.
  4. Wipe skillet clean with paper towel. Add spinach and mushrooms to skillet. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons water if necessary to prevent sticking. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.
  5. In small bowl, whisk together ricotta, basil, red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning; set aside.
  6. To assemble lasagna, spray 9X13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of remaining plain marinara sauce on bottom of dish. Add a layer of lasagna noodles, half of ricotta cheese mixture, half of spinach mixture, and half of sausage-marinara sauce. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat for next layer. To finish lasagna, add one layer of noodles and remaining 1/2 cup plain marinara sauce. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese and the 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
  7. Cover with foil; bake 25 minutes. Remove foil; bake additional 5 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
