White Lasagna (noodle testing)

While I was picking up some supplies from Dollar Tree, I found these oven ready lasagne noodles.They cost  more than $1 at the regular grocery store, but I am not familiar with this brand. I picked up two boxes -- one to use immediately and one for the pantry.

I started with 1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey and 1/2 of a large bell pepper diced. I cooked those together and while they were cooking I made a simple white sauce to which I added garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and Italian seasonings. In a bowl I mixed 6 ounces of shredded mozzarella with a small tub of low fat ricotta cheese and an egg. ( I reserved 2 ounces of my cheese for the top.) Layer all this in the usual way and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if you want.

At that point I covered it and refrigerated it. Half an hour before I wanted to cook I took it out and poured 1 cup of milk over it.  I baked it for 45 minutes with a foil cover and then 15 without.

The results were.....

Quite yummy!
