What’s Special About This Dish?

I promise if you make this dish, no one will care if you throw spinach into the mix. They also won’t notice you used ground turkey instead of beef, which makes this skillet meal a double WINNER!

Or, if you really want to stretch your dollars, make this recipe with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Now, that’s a triple SCORE!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

Turkey Florentine Lasagna starts in a skillet and ends up in your favorite casserole dish. By using no-boil noodles, (ad) the cooking time is cut in half. If all of the reasons above don’t persuade you to make this yummy lasagna, I know what will…CHEESE!

I bet if I mention that the recipe calls for 3 types of CHEESE, your taste buds will start waking up. That always does it for me! The combo of pasta and cheese never fails to please.

How to Make Turkey Florentine Lasagna

Start by gathering all of your ingredients. You’ll need…

Brown the ground turkey (or leftovers) in a skillet with onion and dried Italian herbs. Add your favorite spaghetti sauce and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in the chopped spinach and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes. I purchase the frozen spinach that comes in a bag instead of a block. This allows me to measure out the exact quantity and eliminates having to drain the spinach. Feel free to substitute fresh spinach if desired.

Now, the fun begins! In a 9 X 13 casserole dish, add a thin layer of turkey mixture to coat the pan and prevent sticking. Next, cover the turkey with no-boil lasagna noodles.

Spread another thin layer of turkey mixture over the noodles, then layer with ricotta, parmesan and mozzarella. Repeat process until you reach the top of the casserole dish, ending with mozzarella cheese.

Serving Suggestions

I like to serve Turkey Florentine Lasagna with my Rainbow Salad and a loaf of crusty bread. It also pairs well with Strawberry Pecan Salad or a side of Roasted Broccoli.

What’s even better? This dish is an easy way to put supper on the table, and you can feel good about getting in those veggies for the day! It’s great to serve as a main dish, and also feeds a large crowd for tailgate parties or family dinners.

    My husband isn’t a fan of ground turkey, but I bet I could sneak this in without him knowing about it. I think I’ll try it this weekend!
