  • 2 cups thawed and drained chopped frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup chopped basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large pot, bring several quarts of salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until very al dente, 7 minutes. Remove from water and place on a towel lined baking sheet.

Step 3

Place the olive oil, onion and red pepper in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Saute until the vegetables begin to sweat, about 5 minutes. Add ground turkey, turkey sausage, garlic and Essence, stirring to combine until turkey cooks through, about 10 minutes. Add marinara sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 4

In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups mozzarella and remaining ingredients and set aside.

Step 5

Spray a 13- by 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread 1 cup turkey mixture in bottom of the dish and arrange 4 noodles over turkey mixture; top with 1 1/2 cups turkey mixture. Spread half of cheese mixture over turkey mixture. Repeat layers, ending with the remaining turkey mixture.

Step 6

Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

Step 7

Let lasagna stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Step 8

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
