This is an excellent way to use up some of that leftover turkey you always have from Thanksgiving or Christimas, much better than your standard leftover turkey sammies. Although the instructions are a little lacking, this recipe is still tough to mess up as you only need to prepare both the sauces and the pasta, layer as directed, then pop in the oven. I decided to sautee the onions and mushrooms in olive oil, melted butter in the microwave, then stirred into a mixing bowl. This turned out wayyyy better than I thought and I even like it better than your standard beef lasagna. The white sauce is very hearty, compliments the red sauce nicely, and they blend perfectly with the turkey and veggies. This is definitely one of the best lasagna recipes I've ever tried and I'll definitely be making this again even if I have to go out and buy another turkey to cook. A !
This was even better then I thought it would be, DH ate it up and personally I don't like turkey much but I have lots left to use up. I really am not sure how you are supposed to go about making the sauces either but I used some spaghetti sauce I made for the red sauce and skipped the onion and mushrooms. For the white sauce I melted the butter then added the flour salt and pepper and cooked that a little bit then added the broth and simmered it until it was thickened. I just put the broccoli, parmesan and turkey on the white sauce layer and more tiurkey with the red suace. Thanks for the great start I am sure I will be trying it with chicken again!
I found that the method wasn't explained clearly enough if you were a person just learning to cook. I used chicken instead of Turkey. I moved it to the tomato sauce,omitted the spices and used Taco seasoning instead. I also omitted the Tomato sauce and used Pasta sauce.Delicious! If I was using left over chicken or turkey I think I would put the meat in both sauces and layer as above.
