Gather the family around the table for the comfort of a hot, delicious meal with my Crowd-Pleasing Turkey Lasagna. Fresh herbs, creamy cheeses, and ground turkey make this pasta dish a labor of love that everyone will enjoy.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 gloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnishing
  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 (24 ounce) jars chunky vegetable pasta sauce
  • 2 and 1/2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 (9 ounce) package no-boil lasagna noodles


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large pot, sauté the olive oil, garlic and basil over medium-low heat for about 3 minutes. Add the ground turkey and cook over medium-high heat until cooked all the way through. Add the pasta sauce and let simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the cottage cheese, sour cream and Parmesan cheese.
  3. In a 9×13-inch baking dish, cover the bottom with a thin layer of the meat sauce. Add a layer of lasagna noodles, 1/3 of the remaining meat sauce, 1 cup mozzarella, and half of the cottage cheese mixture. Then top with another layer of lasagna noodles, 1/2 of the remaining meat sauce, 1 cup mozzarella and the remaining cottage cheese mixture. Finish with a final layer of lasagna noodles, the remaining meat sauce, and the remaining mozzarella.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and noodles are soft. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Sprinkle with some chopped fresh basil just before serving.
