Here is a GREAT recipe folks...

Okay, now this is obviously a Free day recipe, or I am sure you can modify it, but this is the best Lasagna EVA...and I say that because it is quick, easy, and tastes phenomenal!!

2 packages italian seasoned ground turkey (Jenny-O brand)
1 package lasagna noodles
2 jars of Classico brand Italian Sausage pasta sauce
15oz of Ricotta cheese
1 pound of Mozarella
1 cup parmesan cheese

In a dutch oven, brown the ground turkey fully. After it is browned, mix in the Italian Sausage pasta sauce. Let simmer for 1 hour. After sauce has been simmering for 40 minutes, You want to start your noodles... In a 13x9 pan, in very hot tap water, soak your lasagna noodles for 20 minutes, then drain. Now you are ready to layer your lasagna. Put 1 small layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan (prevents noodles from sticking.) then layer noodles, ricotta cheese, mozarella cheese, meat sauce and sprinkle with 1/3 of your parmesan cheese...then begin with noodles again, and repeat. The last layer is noodles, mozarella and parmesan. Cover pan with foil (spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray to prevent cheese sticking.) and put in the oven at 375 degrees for 30 minutes...then take off the foil and cook for another 25 minutes. Let sit for 20 minutes before serving...Delish!!!!

For a healthier version, you can use Whole Wheat pasta, and low fat cheeses....let me know what you think!

Just copying and pasting a note to peeps to talk about my move to a new blog(after not updating my old one in forever http://lostbutterflyseekingsolace.blogspot.com/!) and was in the process of transferring online friends. In case you're interested, follow my profile. My new blog is not a fitness one, but feel free to join me over there. It's just a bunch of talking crap about nothing. :)
