Big family, little family, it doesn’t matter. Lasagna is just a favorite for so many. And a lazy lasagna recipe is even better because lasagna usually can take a bit of prep time. Here is the basic recipe I found years ago but I have tweaked it some to fit our family.
No matter the function a great lasagna recipe is sure to hit the spot. Dinner after the kids after school activities, weekend brunch, date night, family gatherings, or whatever the event or occasion you are sure to have a hit with this lasagna recipe.
Lazy Lasagna Recipe
1 pound ground turkey
1 (26-ounce) jar spaghetti sauce ( I use Hunt’s Garlic and Herb )
1 (16-ounce) carton small curd cottage cheese ( I use Breakstone )
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 (8-ounce) package precooked lasagna noodles ( you use 9 noodles)
4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cook meat in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well, and return meat to pan. Add sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Combine cottage and Parmesan cheeses in a bowl; set aside.
Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Arrange 3 noodles over meat mixture; top with half of cottage cheese mixture, 1 cup meat mixture, and 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, ending with noodles. Spread remaining meat mixture over noodles.
Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, and bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
For my version I add Italian seasoning to the cottage cheese/parm mixture. I also add about 1/2 cup of Parmesan instead of 2 tablespoons. And I add garlic powder to the ground turkey when I cook it.
Do you have a special way of making lasagna? I’d love to hear it so drop me a comment.
