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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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 -...

Decent Healthy Lasagna

You have to follow specific measurements for the sauce or else there will not be enough to top off. The same goes for the mozzarella. I definitely did not use as much ricotta cheese since we are not big fans of it. I used spicy turkey Italian sausage a package of thawed spinach (make sure to squeeze water out). I omitted the mushrooms, not a fan of it. Overall, this recipe was okay. Felt like something as off - maybe more sauce and adding more spices like garlic powder, oregano, etc.

Loved this lasagna and the kids even ate it!

I made this for my family and the kids even ate it! I used mild chicken sausage because I was not sure the kids would like spicy sausage. Also, they didn't have mild turkey, so that is why I used chicken. Finally, I added some shredded carrots and sauteed kale for added nutrition. I will definately make this again!

Easy to make and healthy too!

Best Lasagna But Add A Few Ingredients

After reading other reviews, I added 15oz of chunky tomatoes which turned out to be perfect. The recipe as written would have been a little short. I also added one chopped zucchini (at the same time as the mushrooms) for more vegetables- turned out awesome. I also added oregano....Cooking time was a little long but well worth the wait. Try it! So healthy and tasty!

Good cooking instructions, great taste!

Made this today, tasty and very filling. Between the whole wheat noodles, veggies, and sausage, the portions are very satisfying. I agree that recipe is short on sauce. After reading the other reviews, I added an additional 15 oz can of tomatoes and it was just enough to layer the dish. The recipe as written would have not been enough. Other than that, this recipe is very good. Looking forward to taking this to work for lunch this week. Will definitely make again.

Absolutely great!

Have made this several times -loved by everyone -even grandson who 'usually doesn't eat spinach". Substituted 2 T. dried basil for fresh -otherwise followed exactly (unusual for me). Made 24 hrs ahead recently and it still turned out perfect. --- delicious!!
