New stolen recipe

Laney sent me this recipe and it was so easy that I can't not make it again. The pictures aren't the most appetizing and I don't love lasagna- but this was pretty darn tasty and SO fast and easy.

Stovetop Lasagna

1/2-1 lb ground turkey, beef, or Italian Sausage (whichever you like most)
lasagna noodles
1 container low fat ricotta cheese
1 c mozarella cheese
1/4 c parm (I used parm/romano/asiago blend)
1 jar marinara (spaghetti) sauce
1 zucchini chopped
1 squash chopped
1 onion
1 tsp garlic salt

Cook up your meat along with the diced onions and seasonings to taste. Cook until brown and then add half your sauce and your veggies. Cover meat with layer of UNCOOKED lasagna noodles. Add your combined ricotta, 1/2 c mozarella, other cheeses, and garlic salt to next layer. Top with final layer of uncooked lasagna noodles. Pour rest of sauce on top and sprinkle with you remaining cheese. Cover and let simmer medium-low heat for twenty five minutes. Don't let it simmer at too high a temp or the bottom layer will burn.

We used whole wheat noodles and therefore added an extra five minutes to cook time.

glad you liked the lasagna. Did kent give it a score? It is one of my very favorites. Taylor seems to like it the day after even more than the day of.
