Here’s a traditional classic comfort dish with a new twist:

Healthy Potato Lasagna
Ingredients
2 links of Italian turkey sausage (3 ½ ounces each)
1 ½ cups of chopped onion
1 cup of fat-free ricotta cheese
1 tsp of dried basil or Italian seasoning
½ tsp of garlic powder
1 egg white
2 cups of marinara sauce, divided
1 and one-fourth pounds Wisconsin Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced, divided
1 cup of part-skim shredded mozzarella cheese, divided

Remove the sausage from casing and crumble into a medium skillet with onion.
Cook for 10 minutes or until both are browned, breaking up sausage with back of spoon.
Stir together ricotta, basil, garlic powder and egg white in a small bowl.
Spread ½ cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9-inch square baking dish.
Place one-third of the potatoes in the bottom of the dish, forming a solid layer with no gaps.
Drop ½ ricotta mixture in spoonfuls over the top and spread out just a little.
Sprinkle with one-third of mozzarella and ½ sausage mixture.
Add ½ cup more sauce, then repeat potato, cheese and meat layers.
Top with the last layer of potatoes, remaining sauce and mozzarella.
Cover with plastic wrap and make a small slit to vent.
Microwave on high for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Makes 4 servings
