DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a large skillet brown the turkey sausage meat in 1 tablespoon oil along with the onion, garlic and cayenne pepper; cook breaking up the sausage meat while browning.
  • Cook until browned then add in the chopped red peppers; cook for another 2 minutes; drain fat and set aside.
  • Place the spinach in a small saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes; place in a small colinder, rinse under cold water then hand-squeeze very dry.
  • Place the spinach in a large bowl, then add in the cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, 1 egg, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, seasoned salt and black pepper; mix with a wooden spoon until well combined.
  • Spread 1 cup alfredo sauce onto the bottom of prepared baking dish, then top with 4 cooked lasagna noodles, then HALF of the ricotta/spinach mixture, then sprinkle HALF of the sausage mixture on top.
  • Place about 1 cup (or more) of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of the sausage.
  • Repeat the layers (using 1 cup sauce, 4 lasagna noodles, remaining HALF of the spinach/ricotta mixture and then remaining HALF of the sausage mixture).
  • Top with remaining 4 lasagna noodles, then 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese ( can use more cheese).
  • Drizzle remaining alfredo sauce over the shredded cheese, then sprinkle with about 3/4 to 1 cup Parmesan cheese (or to taste).
  • Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake uncovered for another 10-15 minutes.
