Enjoy the Italian classic of a layered hot 'n' bubbly lasagna right out of your oven, without the worry of straying from your diabetes diet regimen. Our Healthy Twist Lasagna uses an assortment of flavorful, lighter ingredients, still packing lots of taste.

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup water, divided
  • 5 zucchini, cut in slices lengthwise
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups low-sodium pasta sauce
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large skillet, boil 1/2 cup water. Add zucchini, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 3 to 4 minutes until zucchini is tender. Drain and set aside.
     
  3. Coat skillet with cooking spray. Cook turkey until no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Add pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, pepper and remaining 1/4-cup water; simmer 5 minutes.
     
  4. Place zucchini in single layer in prepared baking dish. Pour meat sauce over zucchini. Cover and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until heated through. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
