Slimmed Skillet Lasagna

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 16 minutes

Makes 6 servings

  • 8 ounces uncooked bulk turkey sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 2 cups jarred spaghetti sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups dried lasagna noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese

  1. In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender, breaking up the meat. Drain off fat. Stir in spaghetti sauce and water. Bring to a boil. Stir in uncooked noodles and zucchini. Return to a boil, then reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 12 minutes, or until noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Drop the cheese mixture by the spoonful into 6 mounds over sausage-noodle mixture in the skillet. Sprinkle each mound with mozzarella. Cover and cook over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until cheese mixture is heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
