Loaded Lasagna

After searching for lasagna recipes online I decided to throw together my own version for dinner last night.  I think this is another one of those easy meals like meatloaf that you can put in the oven and forget about, but at the same time load it up with tons of veggies.  When we eventually have little ones who refuse to eat their veggies I will certainly be loading their meals with hidden vegetables like pureed carrots. 

Boil whole wheat lasagna noodles and let dry.

Brown 93/7 ground turkey with onions.

Roast zucchini at 350 degrees

Layer sauce then noodles...

Add zucchini...

Add cottage cheese, then spinach, then ground turkey, then cheese!
