  • 1 onion minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 lb ground turkey or extra-lean ground beef
  • 8 oz milk ricotta cheese part-skim
  • 2 cup spaghetti sauce
  • 8 oz lasagna noodles
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese part-skim, shredded
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese low-sodium, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil chopped


  • In a hot, dry gourmet fry pan over medium-high heat, dry sauté the onion and garlic until slightly browned, 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in Italian seasoning.
  • Add the ground turkey or beef and sauté until cooked through, 4-5 minutes, stirring to break up ground meat. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir in the ricotta cheese and set aside.
  • To prepare the lasagna, cover the inside bottom of the large sauté skillet with about 1/2 cup of the spaghetti sauce.
  • Place 4 uncooked lasagna noodles in the bottom of the skillet on top of the sauce (trim the corner of the noodles to fit the skillet).
  • Sprinkle about one-fourth of the mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheeses over the noodles and top with about half the ground meat mixture. Spread about 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce over the cooked ground meat mixture.
  • Place a layer of lasagna noodles on the sauce and repeat the previous steps until the skillet is full, making 2 thick layers and topping the final layer with lasagna noodles.
  • Top the lasagna noodles with the remaining sauce and sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.
  • Cover the skillet, close the vent and bake on top of the stove over medium-low heat for about 50 minutes. Don't peak: removing the cover will destroy the vapor seal, and lengthen the cooking time and may cause the lasagna to burn.
  • Turn the heat off and allow the lasagna to rest for about 15 minutes.
