Ingredients
Turkey & Sweet Italian Sausage Meat Sauce
Ricotta Cheese Mix
Shredded Cheese & Lasagna
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and make sure you have a 13″x9″ baking dish to assemble the lasagna (set aside for now).
  2. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large pot. Add your diced onions and cook for a few minutes until onion are translucent. Add garlic and diced green peppers and saute for another minute or two. Add your ground turkey and sweet Italian Sausage. Add all your spices ( salt, oregano chicken bouillon, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper). Saute until cooked throughout, about 10 minutes. Next add the crushed tomatoes, water, and fresh parsley. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes. If you are in a rush simmer for at least 5 minutes but the extended simmering does allow the flavors to intensify making for a more flavorful sauce.
  3. While the sauce is simmering grate your cheeses (if not using pre grated cheese).
  4. To prepare the ricotta cheese mix. In a large bowl combine ricotta cheese, 1/2 cup of mozzarella Parmesan blend, 1 egg, 2 Tbsp of chopped fresh parsley, and 1/4 tsp salt. Mix until creamy and thoroughly combined.
  5. Gather your pot of meat sauce, shredded cheese, ricotta cheese, and Lasagna noodles and 13″x9″ baking dish and lets start assembling.
  6. A thin layer of meat sauce will be the first to go in. This will prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the dish. After you layer 3 pieces of Lasagna you will proceed to cover with a nice layer of meat sauce. Now care full layer 1/2 if the ricotta cheese mix. I like to add several spoonfuls throughout and then carefully spread with a spatula so it doesn’t mix into the meat sauce as you want it to remain a separate layer. Add about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese and repeat another layer of Lasagna. Repeat the meat sauce, ricotta cheese, and shredded cheese layers. Place your last 3 Lasagna noddles and the last bit of your meat sauce and cover with the remaining 2 cups of shredded cheese.
  7. Cover with foil (to prevent the cheese from drying out) and bake for 40 minutes.
  8. Remove foil and bake for 10 additional minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
