Lindsay's Easy to Eat Lasagna (good for toddlers who don't eat big noodles easily)
1 box of elbow noodles
1-1 1/2 jars thick spaghetti sauce
1/2 chopped green pepper (optional)
1 large chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. Italian sausage (removed from casing) cooked (can use pork or turkey)
1 lb. ground turkey
1 lb. ground turkey
1 large container small curd cottage cheese ( or use excellent ricotta- tastes delicious)
1/2 c Fresh Basil (optional)
1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley (or 2 Tbspn tried parsley)
2 cups Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
4 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Heat oil in large pan. To pan, add ground turkey, sausage, onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until no pink remains. Add jarred sauce and heat through.
While cooking meat, cook noodles according to package directions. Set aside.
Combine Ricotta or cottage cheese with eggs, Parmesan cheese, cracked black pepper and parsley and basil.
Spray some oil into a large deep baking pan to prevent sticking.
Then layer bottom with spaghetti sauce/meat, about two cups. Next, place a layer of noodles, then layer of Rictotta or cottage cheese mixture, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers again.
When you lay your last layer of noodles, place a thin layer of sauce (rather than cottage cheese) and then sprinkle a thick layer of mozzarella on top.
Bake at 375°F uncovered until the top is golden brown and bubbly- about 30 minutes.
