A Healthy-er Lasagna

In my quest to provide my family with tasty, hearty meals minus all the junk, I have come up with a new lasagna recipe. And who doesn’t appreciate a good lasagna?!? My version of a healthy-er lasagna is made with ground turkey and comes pasta free and resulted in second helpings for both my skeptical husband and my toddler.


  • 1 large zucchini (or several depending on the actual size of the zucchini)
  • 1lb of ground turkey
  • 1 can of your favorite pasta sauce
  • 1 8oz bag of shredded italian cheese blend made with skim milk
  • salt and pepper


  • Brown your turkey meat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Thinly slice the zucchini.
  • Coat an 8×8 baking dish with a thin layer of your pasta sauce.
  • Place the zucchini in a single layer directly on top of the sauce. (the zucchini is replacing the high carb/sugar pasta) Sneaky, huh?!?
  • Top with a layer of turkey, followed by a layer of sauce, and a layer of cheese.
  • Then repeat so that you have two complete layers of yumminess.
  • Cover with foil and cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes then remove foil and continue to cook for an additional 10 minutes or cheese is bubbly.

Serve with a salad and Viola!

    This sounds really good, and I might just have to try it. I found a recipe on Sparkpeople that is a skillet lasagna that was a lot healthier too and it was a big hit at my house.
