My lasagna recipe is very easy to follow and very quick to make. Many people may call it not original Italian one, but everyone will like it and will ask for another piece, I promise.


1 package lasagna 
1-2 pounds of ground turkey meat
1 jar of ready tomato sauce (spaghetti sauce ) 
3 cups ricotta cheese
1 pack of mozzarella cheese
1 onion
olive oil
pepper, salt, sugar, cumin, coriander, dry oregano.
fresh parsley, basil, cilantro

I cook for my big family, that's why I use two pans for lasagna and whole package of lasagna pasta. Some brands come with many leaves inside, make your math how many you will need. I use four leaves for one lasagna pie.

Cook pasta according to package direction. If the pasta is ready and sauce is not, leave the pasta in the pot with cold water.

Heat the heavy pot with the olive oil. Chop the onion and fry them until golden color. Add your ground turkey meat. Cook the meat until brown and add the 1/2 tbsp of salt, crushed cumin, coriander and oregano. Stir in spaghetti sauce;simmer for 5 minutes. Try the spoon of the sauce. If more needed add more salt or sugar.

Shred the mozzarella cheese and mix it with the ricotta cheese. Add  chopped fresh greens and ground black pepper.

Spread 1/2 cup meat sauce.

Place one pasta piece. Cover it with meat sauce. Second layer will be spread ricotta-mozzarella cheeses. Third layer is going to be covered with meat sauce, and fourth with cheeses.
 1-meat sauce
 3-meat sauce

If you want sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with foil; bake 30 minutes. Remove foil;bake 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
