Healthy Lasagna Casserole

This serves 2


cooking spray
1/2 lb. ground turkey
2 carrots, diced
1 large onion, diced
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 c. sun dried tomatoes, diced
1/4 c. low sodium tomato sauce
4 oz. whole wheat pasta (I used Pappardelle's Whole Wheat Garlic Linguine)
1/4 c. part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 c. cheese slices, chopped (I used 4 slices of new Sargento's ultra thin provolone)


Preheat oven to 450.

1. Heat up a large saucepan on medium-high. Spray with cooking spray. Add in ground turkey and break up with wooden spoon. Saute 5 minutes. Add onions, carrots, black pepper, Italian seasonings, kosher salt, and red pepper flakes. Saute 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile cook pasta according to the package directions.

3. Add the tomato sauce to the turkey mixture.

4. Add in cooked pasta, ricotta cheese, black pepper, Italian seasoning, and kosher salt. Mix well.

5. Spray a 9x13 pan. Pour in pasta mixture and top with cheese. Bake 15 minutes uncovered or until golden brown.

p.s. the pasta I used is kind of green so that's why the color is kind of weird.
