A Creamy White Turkey Lasagna Recipe with a creamy white cheese sauce, lean and delicious ground turkey, fresh spinach and lasagna noodles. Quick and tasty!
I partnered with Canadian Turkey to bring you this delicious Creamy White Turkey Lasagna Recipe, and was compensated for my time, but the recipe, pictures, all thoughts and opinions are my own as always. We really love turkey.
I know how challenging it can feel to deal with every day meal planning. Creating healthy options for meals 3 times a day is hard! But with a little planning, batch cooking and healthy meal ideas, it doesn’t have to feel so daunting. One of my main goals here on my blog is to help you with the everyday tasks of meal planning. What to make for dinner? Is it quick? Is it healthy? Will my family enjoy it? These are all important things I hope that I can help you with. That’s why I love to share recipes like this Creamy White Turkey Lasagna. A simple and delicious meal idea for your family.
One of the things I find most challenging about meal making, is offering a variety of different meals to my family. It’s easy to get into a dinner routine with the same rotation of 5 or so dishes. I really want to offer more of a variety of recipes, but with ingredients that I know my kids will still love. And that’s why I love turkey so much.
Turkey is such a versatile ingredient that is easily substituted into almost any dinner recipe. I often use it in place of other meats as a way to make the dish a little lighter and more lean. Substituting with turkey is an easy way to keep things tasty and exciting…it’s like giving your favourite meal a makeover! I especially like to use ground turkey, because it has such a nice mild flavour that really pairs well with anything. It’s great in chili, soups, meatballs, tacos, spaghetti sauce and lasagna!
This lasagna is a perfect example of a meal makeover. We love lasagna in our home, but I wanted to try a different kind of lasagna, which was still made with ingredients we love. So I combined 2 of my favourite recipes, one for classic lasagna and the other, a creamy pasta bake, and the result was this Creamy White Turkey Lasagna.
With layers of creamy cheese sauce, delicious ground turkey, chopped fresh spinach, ricotta cheese and lasagna noodles. SO much deliciousness in one dish.
And after about 45 minutes in the oven, dinner is ready!
I served this up one night when my parents were visiting, and between them and our family of 5, we devoured this lasagna. I was definitely a winner winner turkey dinner.
Simple and tasty.
5 Reasons to Make Over Everyday Meals with Turkey!
Kick off great habits in the kitchen by making over everyday favourites using turkey as a key ingredient. Turkey is a whole, nutrient-rich food (meaning it has a lot of nutrients per calorie), and fits into an overall high-quality diet that’s good for you without compromising on flavour or taste! Swap turkey for any protein in all of your favourite recipes and instantly make a leaner, healthier choice. Here’s why you can feel great adding turkey to all your meals and snacks:
1. Canadian turkey is a lean source of high quality protein. Eating enough protein at each meal provides you with long-lasting energy so you can stay satisfied between meals.
2. White turkey cuts are a low fat, extra-lean choice with just 3 grams of fat per 100- gram serving.
3. Dark cuts are lean too, with just 8 grams of fat per 100-gram serving. Plus, dark turkey cuts provide even more iron and zinc (which are key in keeping us healthy during cold and flu season).
4. Turkey is nutrient-rich, packed with protein, vitamins and minerals that we need for good health.
5. All fresh cuts of turkey are naturally low in sodium. And because turkey is super tasty, you don’t need salty marinades to enhance the flavour.
