    *Pixie*'s Note:

    This is my version of a light lasagna recipe found in Self magazine. It can be frozen in individual size portions for later use. To further reduce fat, the ground turkey breast can be cooked separately and then rinsed with water and pressed dry before adding to the sauce.

      Super, super good even if a little labor intensive. You can use a large 9x13 casserole dish or two smaller 8x8s and put one in the freezer for later. It freezes really well. Delicious!

      AWESOME! We made this in advance and froze it (without cooking the noodles). Then just baked at 350 F for about 1 hour. Really really great... this is my new go-to lasagna recipe!

      This was sooo good. I followed the directions exactly except for i used regular lasagna noodles and left out the green pepper and the chives. I also precooked the turkey and drained the extra fat from it. This took alot longer than 35 minutes for me to prep but it was a fun recipe to make! thank you!
