One of my husband’s favorites meals is my lasagna. Even when he and I weren’t clean eaters, I would hesitate to make this meal because I knew how terrible all of the cheesy, gooey-goodness was for us! I would limit our lasagna intake to about 2 times a year, one of those times being his birthday. Every year on his birthday, I tell my husband that I will cook him anything that he wants… and every year, he chooses lasagna. With that being said, I hesitated to make this “healthier” version of lasagna. Even when I mentioned it to him, he definitely didn’t seem sold on the idea and I swear I saw him wrinkle his nose a little bit! I checked out a bunch of different recipes and did a little research. Most people gave it a two thumbs up, so I figured I would give it a whirl. Hey… you don’t know unless you try, right?
In the end, this recipe was a winner! My husband told me twice that it was good and even offered to eat the leftovers tomorrow night so I didn’t have to cook again. SUCCESS! If it’s hubby approved, then you know it’s good!
So here’s what you will need:
1 lb ground turkey 1/2 chopped onion 1 Jar clean pasta sauce (no sugar added) 1/2 tsp oregano 1/2 tsp basil 1/4 tsp garlic powder sea salt and black pepper to taste 16 oz cottage cheese or ricotta cheese 1 cup mozzarella cheese 3 medium zucchinis
