Here’s the solution for what to take to potluck dinners.
8 ounces dried whole-grain lasagna noodles
1 pound lean ground skinless turkey breast
8 ounces button mushrooms, sliced
½ cup chopped onion
3 medium garlic cloves, minced
3 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 teaspoons dried basil, crumbled
½ teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
Pepper to taste
16 ounces fat-free cottage cheese
1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
Dash of nutmeg
2 cups shredded or grated low-fat mozzarella cheese
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.
Prepare the noodles using the package directions, omitting the salt.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stir together the turkey, mushrooms, onion, and garlic. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the turkey is no longer pink, stirring occasionally to turn and break up the turkey. Reduce the heat to low. Cook, covered, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the mushrooms have released their liquid. Increase the heat to high. Cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid evaporates.
Stir in the tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and pepper.
Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes, or until heated through.
In a large bowl, stir together the cottage cheese, spinach, and nutmeg.
In the baking dish, layer one-third of the cooked noodles, one-half of the cottage cheese mixture, one-third of the turkey mixture, and one-third of the mozzarella.
Repeat the layers. Finish in order with the remaining noodles, turkey, and mozzarella.
Bake, covered, for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through and the mozzarella is melted.
