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!
