"I began using turkey in lasagna after my husband and I developed health problems. The recipe is a big hit with my family." --CL Reader

Lasagna is notorious for having a lot of cheese, which is high in saturated fat and cholesterol. This recipe calls for low-fat and reduced-fat cheese, making it a much healthier option. Try this meal with spinach for a great source of folate.
