This recipe was just what Iwas looking for. I didnt add any sugar or Splenda as I was trying to keep the carbs down, I used a Marzetti Napa Valley Pasta sauce which was fantastic, Dreamfields lasagna noodles, and cottage cheese instead of Ricotta. I also doubled the meat and cheese, and used 3 eggs. Fabulous!
This was a pretty good recipe. My only complaint is that 1 tbsp nutmeg seemed too strong, and was the dominant flavor in the entire dish. I would cut back on the nutmeg. That being said, I will use this recipe again as a base and make small adjustments on the ingredients based on my preferences.
My family enjoyed this, but as we are carnivores, we used 2 lbs ground turkey to make a serving for 6. How you can use only 1 pound for 12 people is beyond me, really. I did not use Splenda and I just threw some fresh uncooked spinach over the cheese layer and it worked fine. A really nice lasagna for a change of pace.
This was an AWESOME recipe! The only things I changed: took out the nutmeg/green peppers. Substituted fresh garlic versus the powder. I simmered my sauce in a crockpot for 2-3 hours before adding in the meat. Everyone who ate it, loved it! :)
I had never had ground turkey before, but it was fabulous! My store didn't have whole wheat lasagna noodles but it still turned out great! The spinach was a great addition! My roommate and my parents loved it!
I made this with regular ground beef instead of turkey because of a sale. I also used no salt added tomato sauce to keep down the sodium. Hubby gave it a thumbs up and said he didn't expect the lasagna to taste that good. He liked it so much that he even ate leftovers for breakfast and he usually skips breakfast.
This was very tastey and time consuming. I chose to make homemade tomato sauce. I made a couple mods, used no splenda just sugar (almost 2 T.), used Barilla No Boiling Required lasagne noodles. I don't like using frozen spinach so I bought a 5 oz container of fresh baby spinach and tore it into small pieces, and lastly, I used 4 eggs instead of egg substitute. Thank you for sharing.
Excellent recipe! All the ingredients were in my kitchen... well, the ones I used from the recipe were. I never follow a recipe to the letter. I love finding meals that traditionally cause heart-attacks get a make-over, are delicious and easy to make! Thanks!
I really enjoyed this lasagna. I could not find fat free ricotta cheese so I used low fat. I used 2 egg whites in place of the 1 cup of egg substitute. I did not add the Splenda and the recipe turned out just great. I put my thawed spinach in a paper towel and squeezed it until it was completely dry because I did not want the spinach to make the lasagna soupy. Anyone who is watching their calories should make this! Thanks for sharing!
I liked this recipe, but I would change some things next time I make it. One, I would cut out the Splenda and just use real sugar to remove the acidity. The Splenda taste overpowered the dish and I had to salt like crazy to mask it. Secondly, the meat sauce doesn't need to simmer for a whole hour. 30 minutes should be enough. This was a hit with 3/4s of my family - my Dad doesn't like spinach and wouldn't eat it. His loss though, we all thought it was pretty good.
