The Sauce:

The Rest:


The Sauce:

  • Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick saucepan or skillet set over medium heat. Add the onion, ground turkey and sausages. Cook, crumbling the meat with a wooden spoon, until the turkey and sausages are cooked through.
  • Add the garlic, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the tomato paste and stir to combine with the ground turkey mixture, cooking for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the crushed tomatoes, chicken broth, parsley and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The Rest:

  • Cook the lasagna noodles according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water. Lay out the noodles on kitchen towels in a single layer.
  • Place cottage cheese, parsley and salt into a blender, and puree until smooth.

Assembling The Lasagna:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spread 1 cup of the sauce in the bottom of a 9- by 13-inch baking dish.
  • Lay a few lasagna noodles in a single layer over top of the sauce. When fitting in the lasagna noodles, it may be necessary to cut some in half lengthwise or crosswise so that they fit properly.
  • Spread ⅓ of the cottage cheese mixture over the noodles. Top with 1 ½ cups of the sauce, ¼ of the Parmesan cheese, and ⅓ of the sliced basil.
  • Repeat these layers 2 more times, starting with the lasagna noodles. End with an additional layer of lasagna noodles, and the remaining sauce and Parmesan cheese.
  • Cover with foil and cook for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and baked until the lasagna is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Let rest for 15 minutes, cut into 12 squares and serve.
