Turkey Pumpkin Lasagna

PUMPKIN LASAGNA

Nothing tastes better than freshly baked lasagna on a chilly fall day! (Southern California RockIt Moms ignore that statement!) Made with lean turkey and whole-wheat noodles, this dish is as satisfying as it is healthy. Vegetarians can opt to leave out the turkey. Although my homemade vegetable lasagna is epic, this one is great too!

 

Ingredients:

2 c. pumpkin, pureed

2 c. lean ground turkey

1 c. low fat ricotta

1 onion, chopped

1 zucchini, cubed

1 c. mushrooms, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 lb. whole-wheat lasagna noodles, cooked

1/2 c. low-fat mozzarella cheese, shredded

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onion and mushrooms with olive oil and minced garlic, then add ground turkey. Set aside after cooked all the way through. Mix ricotta cheese with pumpkin puree. Place a layer of noodles in an 8×8 pan, then a layer of the pumpkin mixture. Top with turkey mixture, and repeat. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, then bake for 20 minutes.
