My family and I love pasta recipes! This one is great because it is healthier than your traditional lasagna, without losing all the flavors!

1 pound Italian seasoned ground turkey or regular ground turkey, chicken, or lean beef (I used the 93% lean ground turkey).

16 ounces (2 cups) marinara sauce

1-1/2 cups fat-free cottage cheese (can use full fat or fat free)

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

6 oven-ready lasagna noodles (can use gluten free or low carb)

4 ounces (1 heaping cup) light mozzarella, shredded (can use full fat or fat free)

Finely chopped fresh parsley, optional for garnish

In a large skillet cook ground turkey. Once cooked, stir in marinara sauce, set aside.

Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.

Preheat oven to 350ºF and in an 8 x 8 to 8 x 11″ baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, layer 1/3 meat sauce (more sauce than meat), 2-3 noodles, and 1/2 cottage cheese mixture.

Repeat layering process with meat sauce, noodles and then cottage cheese mixture.

One more layer of meat sauce and then top with mozzarella.

Cover with tin foil. Bake for 20 minutes at 350ºF. Remove tin foil and bake for another 10 minutes.

Let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy a large serving!
