healthy lasagna recipe with ground turkey

Lasagna is typically considered an unhealthy dish, but you can make a healthy lasagna by using leaner ingredients. In this healthy lasagna recipe, I am using extra-lean ground turkey, lowfat ricotta cheese and part-skim mozarella cheese.

I also use 6 lasagna noodles instead of 9 to cut down on carbs.  The resulting healthy turkey lasagna is so delicious that you will not miss the extra calories!  Best if all, this lasagna is really easy to make.
