IngredientsServes: 8

  • 9 wholewheat lasagne sheets
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 450g minced turkey breast
  • 700ml passata
  • 50g sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons dried Italian herbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic granules
  • 175g chopped fresh spinach
  • 500g light ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 225g grated mozzarella cheese

MethodPrep:25min ›Cook:25min ›Extra time:5min cooling › Ready in:55min

  1. Preheat an oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Cook lasagne sheets in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 2 minutes. Add minced turkey and cook 5 to 7 minutes more, stirring to break up any large chunks of meat. Stir in passata, mushrooms, Italian herbs, black pepper and garlic granules. Simmer for 2 minutes and season to taste.
  4. Combine spinach, ricotta and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  5. To assemble, arrange 3 sheets lengthways in the bottom of a greased 20x30cm baking dish. Spread with 1/3 the ricotta mixture, 1/3 of the turkey mixture and 1/3 of the mozzarella. Repeat layers, ending with remaining mozzarella. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.


I kick this up with 1 tablespoon of crushed red chilli flakes.

I didnt use wholewheat lasagne sheets, but I stll think it was healthy for a lasagne! Really yummy-11 Dec 2012

I didn't pre cook the pasta I just cooked the whole thing for 40 mins at 180 in a fan oven. I had to use mascarpone as couldn't find ricotta! it was a bit messy when building it but very tasty! I used extra nutmeg and topped with normal cheese as the mozzarella - even when sliced really thin wasn't enough to top it off . Gorgeous though and we had 4 extra portions for another few days!-29 Jun 2015

This was delicious and easy to make...The whole family enjoyed it..I used minced turkey leg instead (didnt realise until after) used about 700 g so added 2 onions and more passata and the spinach came in 200g bags so used all that.. also used 250g mozzarella cheese.will definitely make again-16 Apr 2013
