  5. Assemble the lasagna: Cover the bottom of an 8 X 12 1/2 inch lasagna pan with a third of the white sauce. Arrange three lasagna noodles to cover the sauce. Spread the turkey mixture over the pasta. Top with roasted red peppers and the second layer of noodles. Spread the spinach mixture over the pasta. Top with a third of the white sauce and the remaining noodles. Spread the top layer with the remaining white sauce and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Cover the pan with foil and bake the lasagna for 30 minutes.

  6. Uncover, and bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let sit 10 minutes before serving.
