I know there are alot of lasagna recipes her,but this just a little bit different and my family loves it. I hope you will too. I don't use ground turkey alot but in this recipe,it's very good,I prefer turkey pepperoni so I tried ground turkey and it's tasty. I also make the same recipe using ground beef and regular pepperoni.
I like Barilla's brand of pasta sauce,it has large chunks of mushrooms,or you can just saute 1 c mushrooms with the meat.
