Ingredients Needed

  • Lasagna noodles
  • Ground turkey
  • Dried oregano
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Egg
  • Milk
  • Mozzarella cheese

Ingredients Notes

No Ricotta Cheese?

Nope. My family doesn’t like it. As an alternative, I use an egg/milk mixture to help hold things together.You won’t miss it…promise. 😉

Ground Turkey

Feel free to use ground beef or Italian sausage instead. However, you may need to drain the meat after browning it and before adding the spaghetti sauce.

Lasagna Noodles

I used regular lasagna noodles that need to be boiled beforehand. If you wish to use oven ready noodles, they will work. Just remember to adjust your cooking time!

Can This Recipe Be Doubled?

  • Yes. You have two options. First, double the ingredients and make in a 9 x 13 baking pan. Increase your covered baking time by about 10 minutes.
  • Second, double the ingredients and use 2- 8 x 8 baking pans. That way, you can freeze the second pan for a later (see next note).

How Do I Freeze This?

  • You have two options for this too. First, prepare the lasagna, but, don’t bake it. Cover it tightly with foil.
  • Second option, prepare it and bake it. Let it cool completely, then, again, cover it tightly with foil.
  • For both options: Cover it really well! You want it to be airtight ( to prevent freezer burn). When you are ready to eat, uncover the pan and let the lasagna defrost for several hours. Cover it again with new foil and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven as noted in the recipe. If the lasagna is totally frozen when being baked, increase your baking time by 20-30 minutes.

Serve it with No Knead Artisan Bread.
