EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Pair the lasagna with a side of cornbread and a salad of iceberg wedges drizzled with chipotle ranch dressing.

To make a vegetarian version, substitute precooked vegan sausage or soy-protein sausage crumbles for the turkey sausage.

When shopping for lasagna noodles for this recipe, look for the flat, homemade-style type. Not having to cook the noodles first is a real time-saver!
