I know I posted this recipe on my old blog, but it's such an easy favorite that I wanted to put it out there again.

You'll need
  • 15 oz. part skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 c. parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 lb. ground turkey, browned and drained
  • 12 lasagna noodles, uncooked
  • 2 1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 c. parsley
  • 26 oz. (one jar) spaghetti sauce
  • 1 c. water
Mix ricotta cheese, 1 1/4 c. mazzarella cheese, 1/4 c. parmesan cheese, parsley and egg until well blended; set aside
Pour spaghetti sauce into meat in skillet; pour water into empty sauce jar; cover jar and shake well; pour into skillet; stir until well mixed
Place 1 c. meat sauce on bottom of 13 x 9 baking dish; layer 3 lasagna noodles, 1/3 of ricotta cheese mixture and 1 c. meat sauce; repeat layers 2 more times; top with remaining 3 noodles and sauce; sprinkle with remaining 1 1/4 c. mozzarella cheese and 1/4 c. parmesan cheese; cover tightly with greased aluminum foil; bake 45 minutes at 350 then remove foil and bake for 15 minutes; let stand 15 minutes
