  1. 3 medium squash, cut lengthwise into 1⁄4-inch-thick slices
  2. 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 pound ground turkey
  5. 1 cup diced yellow onion
  6. 2 (14.5-ounce) cans petite diced tomatoes, drained
  7. 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning, divided
  8. 2 teaspoons garlic salt, divided
  9. 4 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
  10. 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
  11. 1 (8-ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles
  12. 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 21⁄2-quart shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Place squash in a single layer on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt, and let stand 15 minutes. Press with additional paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook turkey and onion, stirring until turkey is browned and crumbly, 6 to 8 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together tomatoes, 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, and 1 teaspoon garlic salt. In a separate bowl, stir together ricotta, Parmesan, remaining 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, and remaining 1 teaspoon garlic salt.
  5. Spread 1⁄2 cup tomato mixture evenly in prepared dish. Top evenly with half of noodles. Cover evenly with one-third of squash. Gently spread half of ricotta mixture over squash; sprinkle with half of turkey mixture. Top with half of remaining tomato mixture. Starting with noodles, repeat layers once. Top with remaining one-third squash.
  6. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes. Top with mozzarella, and bake until cheese is golden brown, approximately 10 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  1. We love this recipe!!! We gets lots of squash this time of year in the garden. I found this last year and both myself and my mother-in-law have made it multiple times!!

  2. You don’t have to use no boil lasagne noodles for making any lasagne recipe. The noodles will cook while in the oven. I haven’t cooked a lasane noodle in years. Comes out perfect every time. I liked this version.
