Dutch Oven Italian Sausage Kale Lasagna

READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • 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.
  • Slice and serve with chopped parsley.
