4 cups homemade or purchased marinara sauce
1 handful fresh basil, washed and chopped
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
8 ounces dry lasagna
1/2 pound ground turkey
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine the marinara sauce, water, fresh basil, minced garlic and oregano. Pour a small amount of sauce into the bottom of a 7- by 11-inch microwave-safe baking dish, and spread out to coat the entire bottom of the pan.
Rinse uncooked lasagne noodles with cold water, and place 1 layer of the noodles into the marinara sauce-coated pan. Next, crumble a layer of uncooked turkey on top (about 1/3 of the ground turkey should be used in each layer). Next, add a thin layer of cottage cheese, and then top that with about 1/3 of the Cheddar cheese and 1/3 of the mozzarella cheese. Repeat the same layers two more times: Noodles, sauce, beef, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese.
Cover with microwave-safe plastic wrap and microwave on medium for 20 minutes, being sure to turn the dish after 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove from the microwave, and let it stand (with the cover on) for 5 minutes. Return to microwave and cook on high for 15 more minutes.
Remove the lasagna from oven and again, let it stand, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes before serving!
