Scale

Ingredients

Turkey Mixture:

  • 1454 g package of ground turkey (makes about 2 cups cooked turkey)
  • 1 medium onion, minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste

Creamy White Cheese Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded white cheese (I used a mix blend of Italian cheeses: provolone, mozzarella, parmesan, asiago and romano)
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded parmesan

Lasagna Additions:

  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 6 lasagna noodles
  • 1 cup mixed white shredded cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Use a 9 x 13 baking dish for this lasagna.

Making the Turkey Mixture and Preparing the Noodles:

  1. Brown the ground turkey with the minced onions and garlic.  Drain, and set aside.
  2. While the turkey is cooking, boil the lasagna noodles until they are al dente.

Making the Creamy White Cheese Sauce:

  1. In a heavy pot melt the butter over low-medium heat.
  2. Once the butter has melted, whisk in the flour until it is fully combined.
  3. Whisk in the whole milk, whisking constantly until the mixture thickens.
  4. Stir in the dry mustard.
  5. Add the shredded cheeses, and stir constantly until the cheese has melted. Set aside.

Putting it all together:

  1. Mix together the cooked ground turkey mixture and the creamy cheese sauce.
  2. Now layer the ingredients as follows:
    • In your 9 x 13 baking dish, add 1/2 of the turkey/cheese mixture
    • Then lay out 3 noodles.
    • Spread the Ricotta cheese over the noodles.
    • Sprinkle on the chopped spinach.
    • Lay out the remaining 3 lasagna noodles.
    • Spread on the remainder of the turkey/cheese mixture
    • Then sprinkle on the 1 cup of grated mixed white shredded cheese
  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and lightly golden brown.
  4. Let rest for 5 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
