Turkey Lasagna using #Ragu4You

I recently got a #ComfortVox box in the mail from Influenster.com. It was full of awesome free samples and coupons. One of those coupons was fro a free jar of Ragu. Today I am going to share my recipe for lasagna that I made with Ragu. I made one big pan full of Turkey Lasagna.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 1/2 box of Lasagna noodles (oven ready)
  • 1 jar of your favorite flavor Ragu


PREPARATION

    1. Finely chop onion, carrots, celery, and bell pepper. Mince garlic.
    2. In a large heavy non-stick skillet brown turkey meat stirring and breaking up lumps, until just cooked through. Add to skillet chopped vegetables, garlic, rosemary, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just softened.  Stir in the jar  of Ragu sauce and keep warm, covered. 
    3. I get the water boiling, dip the noodles for about a minute or so then put in the pan. I put a layer of sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 baking pan. I never measure but its probably about a cup of sauce then I add 3 noodles side by side, Layer 1/2 the cheese mix on top of the noodles,  Put a layer of sauce, Top that with 3 more noodles, then put the rest of the cheese for another layer of cheese and then 3 more noodles. Then I put another cup or some of sauce on the top. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. About 10 minutes before its done I like to sprinkle a handful of mozzarella cheese over top the sauce to brown.  When you first take it out of the oven it will be very runny because of the melted cheese. We let it sit about 20 minutes before cutting to keep it from being so runny. This was so good, that we almost licked the pan. Apparently it has been too long since I made lasagna because usually we have leftovers to eat the next day but we ate the whole pan in one evening.  I also make stuffed shells just the same way only instead of layering the noodles, I stuff the shells with the cheese mix and put sauce of them. My daughter thinks it taste better as stuffed shells. I tell her its exactly the same but she still swears by stuffed noodles. I really want to say thanks to Influenster and  #Ragu4You for the free sauce. - See more at: http://lady-nightwater.blogspot.com/2015/10/making-lasagna-with-ragu4you.html#sthash.8dR2IoAu.dpuf
