Lean Turkey Lasagna

Posted by  on Monday, October 26th, 2009 at 1:18 pm

I found this recipe a while ago and keep coming back to it. It’s healthy, relatively quick to make and never disappoints. I gravitate towards no-boil noodles, simply because they take a few steps out of the process.
Turkey Lasagna

  • Vegetable-oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 28 once can of crushed tomatoes
