Oh man! This recipe came from not having quite enough of one type of meat. So "improvise" is what I say! This is rich, creamy and good enough for company. I've tried to trim it down a bit by using low fat cheeses & 1% milk. There's still some calories but I promise you that you will love this!
1Fill large stock pot 3/4 full of cold water & add about 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and add lasagna noodles. Cook according to package directions until al dente.
2In large skillet add olive oil and brown ground turkey and finely chopped chicken for 3-5 minutes.
3Approximately halfway through browning (3-5 minutes) add the following seasonings: Garlic & Onion Powder, nutmeg, red pepper flakes, dried basil & oregano.
4Add 1/2 stick butter and diced onion allow to saute until onion is partially cooked about 3 minutes then sprinkle all ingredients with flour and stir. Let the flour cook off for a few minutes it will have a paste like appearance and begin to slightly brown.
5Now slowly wisk in milk while simmering gently. You may need a bit more but 1 cup is close.
Simmering for a few minutes will thicken slightly then add parmesan cheese to thicken more. It should resemble slightly thicker jarred alfredo sauce.
6Add minced garlic, drained & chopped artichokes & mushrooms to the meat & sauce mixture and simmer for a few minutes. Remove this from the heat and let cool while assembling the cheese filling.
7In a large mixing bowl scramble 2 eggs then add and combine the remaining ingredients for the cheese filling.
*be sure you squeeze the moisture out of the thawed spinach
8For the assembly spray a large 9x13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread a few tablespoons of the meat & sauce mixture across the bottom to prevent the noodles from sticking.
9Layer 3 noodles, 1/3 meat & sauce mixture, 1/2 cheese filling, 6 provelone cheese slices then noodles, 1/3 meat, remaining 1/2 cheese filling & 6 more provelone cheese slices last layer will be meat & sauce topped with shredded cheeses of your choice
**I tried Garlic Parsley, Cheddar & Parmesean Cheeses this time and it was so good!
10Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes removing foil the last 10 minutes to melt cheese well.
Remove from oven & let stand for 10-15 minutes to set. Serve with mixed greens & garlic bread.
