It's pretty simple

Honi's Zuchini and Spinach Lasagna

3 medium zuchini
1 jar Barilla tomato basil sauce
1 box frozen chopped spinach
1 small container low fat cottage cheese
1/2 bag of 6 cheese Italian style shredded cheese
1/4 bag shredded parm cheese
1 small container LEAN ground turkey meat
1 box no boil Lasagna noodles
olive oil
2 tsp. jarred minced garlic
basil to taste
rosemary to taste
Brown turkey 1 tsp minced garlic use olive oil sparingly add a little rosemary and basil
saute zuch and 1 tsp minced garlic, add spinach ( be sure and DRAIN WATER OUT OF SPINACH COMPLETLY PRIOR TO ADDING TO ZUCH) and season to taste with rosemary ,basil

take one container of light cottage cheese place in medium bowl use a hand mixer ( we have a cuisart wand which we love) to puree cottage cheese until smooth as possible. add a little italian seasoning, basil.. rosemary ... after veggies are sauteed until tender, turkey is browned... layer Lasagna on bottom, sauce, turkey, cottage cheese, zuch mixture..cheese and repeat layers caping off with lasagna noodle layer, cheese and sauce..
Cover with foil bake 350 ( PREHEAT OVEN 350) for 60 minutes cook uncovered 30 minutes until golden and cheese is melted... AS my husband said. he loved it... this will be a mainstay recipe.. yay.. OHH thanks for all the eggplant advice.. I appreciate it.. we had strawberries dipped in darked chocolate with a little whipped cream, and blueberries for dessert... very yummy indeed.. since we did not cook at home last night , we went out to a Ginza for a wonderful dinner of sushi and a shared entree of number 507 I think .. lol.. it was shrimp, ramen noodles , scallions and carrots in a very light sweeter based sauce.. .. I think we prefer the chicken better...
Until next time.....
