I had my 8 year old nephew over for the weekend, and he wanted to make lasagna.  So he did! Yeah, I bought a couple ingredients, but if my 8 year old nephew can make this recipe, so can you.
Thanks to for the picture (I ate my lasagna before I could take a picture of it, but this is pretty much what it looks like when it's done).

  • 1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (we used fire roasted tomatoes)
  • 1 small box lasagna noodles
  • 15 oz Ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c parmesan
  • 1 large bag shredded mozzarella
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown your turkey/beef, and then add in the tomatoes and spaghetti sauce.  Season to taste.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine ricotta, eggs, and parmesan together.
  4. Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with cooking spray (or wipe it down with some cooking oil).
  5. Begin making your layers:
    1. Meat sauce
    2. Noodles (break them to fit the size of the pan if needed-- you can cook them before hand, but you don't have to.
    3. Cheese mixture
    4. Mozzarella
  6. If you have room, go ahead and begin the layering again, starting with the meat sauce.
    1. However, if you run out of room, just be sure to end with Mozzarella on top.
  7. Put foil over the pan and peak it like a tent--that way the cheese won't stick to the foil.
  8. Bake for 1 hour, then remove the foil, then continue baking for 15 minutes or until the cheese is browned.
  9. Remove from the oven, let it cool a little bit, then enjoy!
