Mexicali Lasagne (healthy!)

Allison Hazell


This turned out so well! I knew I had the following ingredients in my kitchen: No cook lasagne noodles (love them!) Great new salsas, Low fat colby/jack shredded cheeses, Low fat mozzarella, ground turkey. Voila! This turned out delicate, tasty and nutritous! (I'm pretty sure)Since I did this on the fly, keep tasting the turkey mixture until it tastes perfect to you. But this is roughly what I did!

How to Make Mexicali Lasagne (healthy!)


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray frying pan with Cooking spray. Brown and fully cook turkey in fry pan....
    For this recipe use an 8x8 casserole (small) and you can double and use a 9x13.
  2. Add entire jar of Cilantro Salsa, garlic powder, onion salt, and 2 tablespoons of fresh parlsey. (save the last tablespoon)
  3. Simmer for about 20 mins until most liquid is gone and meat is tasting like the seasoning. This is where you may want to add a bit of salt or more garlic powder. Remember, fresh parsley has a peppery taste and will make it a bit peppery.
  4. Layering
    Start with meat sauce. Put no cook noodles on top.
    Then, meat sauce again, and top with 1 cup mozzarella
    Top again with no cook noodles.
    Layer again with turkey meat sauce, and cover with 1/2 cup mozzarell and 1/2 cup Mexican cheese mixture.
    Noodles again, and top with almost a full can of garlic and onion tomatoes and 1/2 jar fruity mexican salsa.
    End with the rest of the cheese and the rest of the parsley sprinked with the cheese
  5. Cook covered with foil for about 40- 50 minutes.
    Take foil off and cook another 10-15 minutes until top is bubbly brown.
