If you love pasta, no-fuss recipes with easy cleanup, and dishes full of bold flavors, look no further because this Dutch Oven Italian Sausage Kale Lasagna is exactly the recipe you’ve been searching for your whole life!
On the stovetop, heat olive oil in a Dutch oven to medium-high heat. Add onion and cook 2-3 minutes, until starting to soften. Add turkey sausage and kale and sauté until sausage is browned and kale is wilted, about 5-6 minutes. Stir in garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes. Remove from heat.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together marinara sauce, cottage cheese, eggs, salt, pepper, and the sausage/kale mixture.
In the same Dutch oven, spoon some of the sausage mixture into the bottom. Place 3 noodles on top, breaking them up to fit the pot, if necessary. Top with 1/3 of the sausage mixture then top with 1/3 of the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Repeat with remaining ingredients, finishing with a layer of cheese.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes with the lid on. Remove the lid and bake for an additional 12 minutes. Turn the oven on a low broil and broil for 3-4 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and browned. Remove from the oven and allow to cool about 10 minutes.
