Sausage, Mushroom & Spinach Lasagna

This cheesy lasagna is full of spicy Italian turkey sausage, whole-wheat noodles, mushrooms and spinach. A serving of this version has about one-third the fat and saturated fat, and only half the calories of the original. Use soy-based sausage for a hearty vegetarian variation.

Started out with this recipe and morphed into something else.

I started making the spinach and mushrooms a couple of days before Christmas. When I got to the store to buy lasagna sheets, they didn't have them. So, I morphed it into a different kind of "lasagna" - layered the spinach/mushroom mixture, cheeses and sauce, but used eggplant and sauteed tofu slices in place of the pasta sheets. I am still enjoying this vegetarian dish because I made extra and froze them into portions.

Healthy and tasty ingredients.

Wow arvida224, just wanted you to know that I followed your lead on the "different kind of lasagna" and it turned out great! A new favorite for sure.

This lasagna is really great. Nice to change it up from regular lasagna once in a while.

Sidenote: I thought it would be good to use this dried mushroom blend (porcinis, portobellos, morels, etc.) and I followed all the directions - soaking first, then cooking according to the recipe, but they got tough somewhere along the way. Just FYI.

I was really surprised with how well this turned out. I made it as stated except I used oven-ready pasta and added 2 cloves of garlic to the meat mixture. I didn't have a problem with the amount of sauce... maybe the other reviewer used the wrong size can of crushed tomatoes or something?Anyway, this definitely had a lot of flavor and didn't taste healthy at all!

For some reason, I really didn't have enough sauce - even threw in a can of tomato paste to stretch out the large can of crushed tomatoes. And wound up with far too much ricotta. But overall, I would make this again.

Awesome lasagna! Light and full of flavor. I was surprised the recipe called for no onion or garlic, so I tossed onions in with the sausage and mushroom mix and garlic in with the tomato sauce. It is definitely a keeper!
