Lasagna with Strawberry Salad

April 22, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

Last Updated on

A definite go to meal in our house is lasagna.  I made it the other night with The Easiest Strawberry Spinach Salad from Freshly Completed by Allie and it was fabulous!
Start out by cooking ground turkey in a pan with minimal extra virgin olive oil.  While the meat is browning, mix together 1 egg, 3 cups of ricotta cheese and 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella cheese.
Once the meat has browned add in 48 ounces of spaghetti sauce.  I know how to make my mom’s spaghetti sauce, but it’s so much easier to use the jarred stuff.  We prefer Ragu’s Parmesan & Romano.  Let this cook through.
To start out you want to put a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of the 9 X 13 baking dish.  Then place a layer of no boil lasagna noodles (if you prefer you can use lasagna noodles that need to be boiled and it will make your lasagna thicker).  On top of the noodles spread the cheese mixture.  Next you’ll put the meat and sauce mixture on top of the cheese and continue the layers until you’ve used nine lasagna noodles or three layers of noodles.
For the final cheese layer, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese and add Parmesan as a topper.
Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  We like our lasagna with a touch of golden brown goodness.

Plate and enjoy!
