Wine Country Lasagna

My kids could eat pasta every night of the week {wait … taco night is pretty high up there}.  Not only is pasta super easy and fast, it is affordable and I love having enough of it in the house to make something different as often as possible.  With all the activities the kids do, feeding them all these carbs is totally okay, they are burning them off like crazy.  Since it is like pulling teeth to get my kids to eat cooked or steamed veggies, I have to get really creative when it comes to dinners.  Pasta is one of the best ways to sneak in as many veggies as possible.  I love it

Wine Country Lasagna

Ingredients
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 cup cut fresh carrots
1 cup fresh mushrooms
fresh garlic cloves {as many as you prefer}
1 tsp garlic powder
1 lb ground turkey
EVOO
1 jar of your favorite red sauce {Mia’s Kitchen}
fresh parm cheese
cottage cheese
kosher/sea salt
1 bottle dash glass of your fave red wine {for the mixture} the rest for you {Cline Cellars}
1 package of lasagna noodles

Directions
Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Chop or cut spinach, carrots, mushrooms and garlic and place in a food processor.  Add a few dashes of EVOO to the ingredients and pulse/blend {do not make it to liquid form} you want to have some pieces and chunks {just enough to hide from the kids}.  Cook your ground turkey and drain any extra.  Season with kosher salt {so much better than table salt} and add your mixed veggies.  Saute and cook with the red wine.  Add your sauce and simmer for about 15 mins.   Have your noodles cooking while doing this.
Pour a glass of wine … sip and cook

Drain noodles, rinse and cool.  Place one lasagna noodle out on a flat surface spread your cottage cheese in the center of the noodle, then add your turkey mixture {try keeping all in the center, as you roll it will fall out if not}.  Roll your lasagna noodle with all ingredients inside and place seam down in baking dish.  *Wine … sip and cook.

Once all are in place, use the rest of your filling and cover your noodles and add top with cottage cheese, sprinkle with fresh parmesan cheese.  *Wine … sip and cook

  8. I’m trying to image wine in Lasagna, and thinking it would be a nice addition to this savory pasta dish. I’ll have to give this a try.
