1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
1/4 tsp olive oil
8 ounces onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces ground turkey
1 can tomato puree
6 ounce tomato paste
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, divided
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp Freshly ground black pepper

8 ounces mozzarella, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Turkey Lasagna

  1. Toast fennel seeds, pepper flakes, and black pepper in a dry skillet until fragrant. Add olive oil, onions, and garlic and gently cook until onions are translucent. Add turkey and brown. Add the tomato puree, tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of the parsley, the basil, 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat, for 15 to 20 minutes, until thickened.

  2. Meanwhile, fill a large bowl with the hottest tap water. Add the noodles and allow them to sit in the water for 20 minutes. Drain.

  3. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta, goat cheese, 1/4 cup of Parmesan, the egg, the remaining 2 tablespoons of parsley, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Set aside.

  4. Ladle 1/3 of the sauce into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch rectangular baking dish, spreading the sauce over the bottom of the dish. Then add the layers as follows: half the pasta, half the mozzarella, half the ricotta, and one third of the sauce. Add the rest of the pasta, mozzarella, ricotta, and finally, sauce. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of Parmesan. Bake for 30 minutes, until the sauce is bubbling.
