    Barb Gertz's Note:

    Finally! A flavorful lighter version of the classic baked lasagna. Turkey may be used instead of sausage or use 1/2 pound of each.

      This lasagna is excellent! A group of ten adults and teenagers loved it. I'd say that the sausage made the dish (for healthier sausage with great flavor I used Applegate Farms Fire Roasted Red Pepper Sausage.) This recipe is easy to make and it is delicious. I can't recommend it enough. Thanks Barb for yet another great recipe!

      This was really good! The only thing I did different was to use the no bake noodles and the sweet turkey italian sausage. I think it would have had more flavor if I used the publix turkey italian sausage and just boiled the noodles.

      Delicious - we used hot Italian sausage and the whole package (16 oz) of the lasagna noodles, a bit extra cheese and extra tomato sauce to cover the noodles. The three of us ate half the pan! We will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing!
