Earlier this week, I had on hand ingredients to make this lasagna from a recipe in the Ultimate Italian 2009 BH&G magazine.

Ingredients for the sauce - turkey sausage, chopped onions, tomatoes and Italian seasoning

The creamy layer was ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, thawed spinach and an egg

Other ingredients

I actually made this one day and reheated for another - it was awesome and Mr. John gave it 4 stars!
