Pasta less lasagna

Yep you didn't read that wrong. Lasagna with no pasta. We try to consume the least amount of carbs for dinner. So this is basically a weekly dish in our house so yummy! Seriously you won't even notice the pasta part is missing.

 1.25 pound package of Jenny O lean turkey 93/7
 one jar of Bertolli organic spaghetti sauce
 1 cup reduced fat Italian style grated cheese
small container of low fat ricotta cheese
Fresh basil shredded
 Your choice of veggies (I like fresh spinach boiled and sauteed mushrooms)

Preheat oven to 350. Cook ground turkey thoroughly in pan. Drain. Put half of cooked ground turkey in a glass baking dish. Put entire container of ricotta cheese over turkey. Then put half of jar of spaghetti sauce over cheese. Put veggies over this and sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese. Put remaining ground turkey and sauce. Then cover with the rest of cheese. Sprinkle with desired amount of basil. Put in oven for 25 min.

 Enjoy! I love this recipe! It's even better the next day reheated for lunch mmmmmmm
